Shout! Factory ‘Rasputin The Mad Monk’ Blu-ray

Synopsis:

Hammer Films’ dual reputation for screen shock and flamboyant costume adventure meld in this tale of the real-life “holy man” whose evil charm held the fate of an entire nation in its grip.

In Czarist Russia, Rasputin (Christopher Lee), a peasant monk, mysteriously demonstrates his healing powers by saving a woman’s life and asking only for wine and a Bacchanalian celebration in return. But soon Rasputin uses his evil charm and powers to become increasingly manipulative and violent. Ferocious, devious and other-worldly, this uncouth peasant ingratiates himself bit by bit into the lives of the sophisticated royal class … Christopher Lee’s multi-layered performance as Rasputin rates as one of the best portrayals in any film.
