I ordered this DVD without any idea as to it's quality --- the original title for the disc (as opposed to the American release monicker, "The Man Who Lived Again" ) tipped me off that it could be something special. Well, Karloff fans, it is something WONDERFUL, and every bit the Karloff "event" as last year's "The Ghoul". As most of you know, the pic was virtually lost for decades, and the only video source was a well-used 16mm print with the American main title. This DVD is, however, very much the real thing, and it looks and sounds terrific --- it's the major vintage horror release of 2004 (so far), and I dare say it will be hard for anyone to top it. As to the movie, it is one of Karloff's best from any period, and I would recommend this DVD without reservation!
