One of my fave Klaus performances but the flick has not held up for me over the years. Great poster, though.

I like how they've spelled Kinski's name "Kinsky" on the poster. When I first saw it I thought it said "Klaus Kinky."

I might like the film a bit more than you, Dan. But I agree about Kinski's performance. His Renfield is fantastic!

I like the film a lot, surprising sice most of Franco's work is junk.

Klaus!baby!..We can't film it in a real Asylum.I'm afraid they'd want to keep you..

Looking at these pictures of Kinski I couldn't help but be reminded of the Olsen & Johnson line, "What would you charge to haunt a house?" Then I took a closer look at this and I think, "Ask Jesus Franco, he knows."

I wonder what market this was for (I'm guessing Spain) since Kinski got second billing ahead of Herbert Lom. Interesting since this was before his breakout performances with Herzog.
