One of the greatest of all horror films, because it accepts, in a novel way, the ultimate victory of evil.  That last scene -- amazing. Even the audience is corrupted.

 

But -- it must be seen in the British print. I don't mind the title change or reading over the credits, but there are other changes, particularly the music, which makes the American print inferior.

 

They don't need to remake it. It's Price's greatest horror film.
