This was one of Karloff’s last pictures.

His career had undergone a revival in the early 60’s thanks to Mario Bava and Roger Corman.

Even if he was in some right old tat in the 50’s he never hit the career lows of Lugosi.

Lee almost makes anything look passable and he’s probably made more films than most actors.

Might just be me, but I can't watch that. The sound is so far out of whack which is a shame cos it looks good

Right so I watched the cult of the Crimson Altar. It was alright up till the end. Good story that benefitted from actors like Christoopher Lee, but the ending just let it down.

The Creeping Flesh is an eerie, interesting, but somewhat uneven film.

I sort of like the fact you are meant to make up your own mind about Peter Cushing’s character at the end.

Cushing and Lee are excellent was usual.

Next up in our Tigon films rewatch is The Blood on Satan’s Claw (or Satan’s Skin as it was first known in Australia.

Padders has a prominent role, as does Anthony Ainley.

There’s also the kid from Catweazle and Frank Spencer’s wife (Michelle Dotrice).

I see Group Captain "Chunky" Gilmore's in it too, although "Stumpy" would be more apt here...

Got a working copy of The Creeping Flesh, that was the best so far. I thought the all-white lab was a bit of a give away but there was a moral repugnance to the story that I really liked, Cushing trying to protect his daughter but ballsing it up. I thought it had a better atmosphere than the folk horror ones but Hammer will always reign in that area. All in all it was rather good.
