Watching: Horror Express 1972

Anything with Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing in it is watchable.  Add Telly Savalas and you have a worthwhile evening of cinema.

I feel like I have seen multiple cuts of this film and the version I am watching now from Hulu feels like a VHS transfer.  Muddy and borderline unwatchable.  I expect I would be a lot more tolerant if I hadn’t seen it before.

Poking around I see that there is a recent Blu Ray transfer that I will need to check out.  Some of the edits are really amateurish, but despite that the production values seem fairly high and Lee and Cushing are always professionals regardless  of the subject matter they are involved in.
