There isn't much in the story that one hasn't seen before, until the very end when Browning and the script turn everything on its ear.

A real touch of class is present in James Wong Howe's magnificent photography, not to mention Carol Borland's stunning apparition as a vampire.

Suffering from a flagging pace and patchy script, the film has its plus points nevertheless -- notably a good use of visuals.
