Viewing Notes

Found a Peter Cushing film on Prime that I haven’t seen. Sadly it’s 1.33/1 and not a great transfer. Perhaps it was shot in this aspect ratio for television? Seems like it could be an Amicus flick but I’ll have to check. Rather wild to see John Hurt in this along w/Cushing. Also very much like a proto-Castle Freak story. Not a very good movie but certainly worth the watch for Cushing + Hurt.
