Great movie. It has an atmosphere that makes for an uncomfortable viewing. The nudity only adds to that, it isn't sexy. It also has one of the best finales I have ever seen, even if I had seen the remake before watching this. Christopher Lee and Edward Woodward give great, GREAT performances.

This one didn't quite work for me. It has a lot of good stuff, but I found it kind of dragged in parts.
