Rasputin, the Mad Monk (1966)

Rasputin, the Mad Monk (1966) There’s noting quite like history transformed into horror, and this production cast Christopher Lee in his most commanding performance. As he crawls across the floor to avenge his assassination, his hypnotic eyes bulge in fury as if a preying mantis ever had eyes. Here’s a religious creature who can outdrink, outdance, and outstare any competitor. I would have loved to see Lee in a Masterpiece version, this time grounded in what is now known about Rasputin and his numerous deaths.
