It's surprisingly sad.

Karloff injects a surprising amount of warmth into the monster actually. It only works if you see it as completely different to the book.

Oh boy, so what if it's way too different from the original book plot? IT IS A MOVIE! Is not supposed to be a video-book!
It's absurd to claim "but the book was better" both are different thing's, or was the comic book better than the operetta? Pfff! Stop being pretentious guys, you obviously don't read neither see enough movies.
