In FMOTF number 6, Vincent Lewis, in his Horror of Dracula review, says "In comparison to Lee's deathly sinister portrayal, Lugosi's Dracula is today not only completely outdated but in many instances utterly ludicrous." I love both Lee and Lugosi and all I can say is Mr. Lewis's statement is ludicrous. One can argue thematics, varying character to sociological nuances, and tonally structured elements, but I doubt he knew what those were, so why bother? On a more positive note, horror host, the Outsider, (bet you didn't know about him!) of Nightmare Theatre is spotlighted, Bela Lugosi's filmography is listed, and The Shadow strikes back.
