Find AMC all but unwatchable these days.
Went to Maine last month and while flipping around came to TCM and seeing Bela Lugosi on a train and knew it would be both Bela and Boris. While there is a lot of stagnancy and occasional incomprehension here, the two give it a great deal of weight. Boris is quite creepy as the decadent traitorous Satanist ("Cum Grano Salis!") and Bela is so moving through most of it, although quite scary when he opens up a big case of payback towards the end. If you look closely, you can see John Carradine playing the organ. ***
Very cool film. I've never seen a film quite like it.
