Claude Rains gives an incredible performance with pretty much just his voice in this. I know I'm not saying anything new but It's quite remarkable to watch this after the previous two and realize just what a grasp that James Whale had on this kind of picture. The effects are great, the script is tight, Rains is legitimately nutso, and most of all it's funny. The beginning especially with all the villagers and the innkeeper couple. There's just a tiny piece of business when the innkeeper lady goes to prep the room for Rains where she raises like 4 hinged bar pieces in a row that I found particularly funny.
So this was good fun. I'm glad I saved it for third. I liked it the most by far.
So that finishes up my Universal Horror triple feature. The rest of the stuff on my DVR is dumb comedy so I may switch to Netflix as the night goes on... but what the hell, let's indulge once or twice.
