Long boring dreck made from parts of better movies.
28 February 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie doesn't start well, in fact the first 10 minutes of the movie, I turned to my group watching it, and say wait isn't this? At which point they all responded with Dracula, as we were all thinking the same thing. The movie continues on to borrow more scenes from Dracula, Frankenstein, the Phantom of the Opera, and so many more less classic movies that there was a lot of - wait isn't that from? Unfortunately, it didn't even try to put those movies together in any kind of cohesive narrative, and was so predictable that you will know how it ends halfway through, but are forced to sit through another hour and 15 minutes of a clichéd dull plot that at the end if you're still awake can unsatisfyingly say to yourself I knew it.

Another thing was that most of the score consisted with a song that sounded like Nat King Cole's "Nature Boy", so much so I could have sworn that was the music being played except with the lyrics replaced by "lalalala". Turns out reading the credits they didn't credit Nat King Cole's song, so it must have been a poor rendition of it. And that in a nutshell was how I explained my dislike of this movie to a friend, I told him that the movie felt just like that, a poor rendition of much better films.

Don't get me wrong, I love classic horror, but this doesn't stand a candle among the movies it takes from, and bored me to tears and exhaustion. Skip it, you can get more entertainment from watching wallpaper dry.
