Too bad the update doesn't come off as good as it should have been, though it comes through as a campy romp and has a few wonderful moments.
Desi Arnaz Jr. is deadly in the largest role -- and the two twist endings (present in the source material) are strictly take-it-or-leave-it -- but the presence of Vincent Price, Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee allow all the shenanigans to go down easy.
This could have been a good movie if it weren't so predictable. First of all, Price, Lee, and Cushing are the only actors who get any interesting lines throughout the whole movie. The rest of the cast can hardly act, and their lame dialogue isn't helping any. You may think today that the plot is old, but even in 1984 it was an overly used plot. The only thing that this film had going for it when it came out was its cast of famous horror film actors, which is the reason I wanted to see the movie too. In fact, this movie wouldn't have been so bad if it didn't have a predictable twist at the end.
There are no approved quotes yet for this movie.
