I, Monster (1971) - Christopher Lee DVD
I, Monster (1971)
Christopher Lee added to his catalogue of iconic horror roles with this 1971 version of Jekyll and Hyde, although the character names here are inexplicably changed. Lee plays psychologist Charles Marlowe who invents a drug which will release his patients' inhibitions - but when he tests it on himself he becomes cruel, immoral Edward Blake who descends into crime and eventually murder.
Peter Cushing plays Marlowe's lawyer, Utterson, who believes that Black is blackmailing his friend until he discovers the truth. Although this is an Amicus Films production, it looks like a 'Hammer horror' movie due to the presence in the cast of Mike Raven (Lust for a Vampire), Kenneth J. Warren (Demons of the Mind) and George Merritt (Dracula) and also the work of cinematographer Moray Grant (Horror of Frankenstein).
