Stunning cinematography, and absolutely true to the original story. An essential addition to any serious film collection.

This movie is so beautiful it's hard to describe. Inventive, artistic, flowing, majestic. This treasure was made over 60 years ago but makes the most of special effects to completely engage the audience. They aren't blatent either. You have to pay attention to the carvings on the fireplace and statues. Notice the way the beast's ears move (like a hunter) when he hears an animal in the wood. I don't want to give away other surprises because it would ruin the experience. Watching it, I felt like I was looking at a beautiful painting, seeing a lovely ballet, and being mezmerized by a great movie. I know my comments sound silly, but you have to see it. I did see it many years ago and recently rented it. The years haven't diminished the experience. I love movies and have eclectic taste. This is a treasure of the art house movies.

Now it comes to it. They beat the beast and made him angry and hardened his heart to the core. Now he seeks retibution and vengeance assuring that the master breathes no more. No those are my lyrics. Anyway this is still a great classic film from the golden era of cinema. It is worth watching just for that reason. Like Kubrick's Barry Lyndon. It is a study in film noir lighting techniques on silvertone. It is actually rather good and entertaining. I might have been scared back in those days by the special effects..hough houwgh houwgh... Well okay but still it's entertaining well and good enough. Ye who be the true Beastlord, he hath stood and he hath spake upon the matter. As for the Slavedragon he shalt leave his own sordid epic details to the self evidency of his be blackened surroundings at happenstance.
