In the hands of Alfred Hitchcock this story rocks. A lot of directors would be clumsy and screw the whole thing up, but Hitch plays it perfectly and even for such an old film it's still pretty exciting. The story's logic is stretched a few times, but it's alright. Great photography, quick pace, quirky characters, Skinny Puppy sample, strong performances, dark humor, lots of vampire themes/references. Solid Hitchcock outing. Worth a watch for sure.

I recognize that big ol' head off to the left.
