Benny: Surprisingly good, I like Vincent Price so this was a good film from this youth.
Rudy: I love this movie, and I love Vincent Price. I do wish that they could have explored certain parts of the movie more because it would have made it even better, but they couldn't because of the time period in Hollywood.Tags: Dragonwyck
