Makes for pretty compelling entertainment. Just don't take it for anything like historically accurate

Audience Reviews for Tower of London

I really like this movie, it has many great actors, a good horror story, and I like the ending. I highly recommend this movie. I also like the remake from the 60s, watch Vincent Price's part in both movies, it's really funny.
