Thrown out of his monastery for licentious and drunken behavior, Rasputin travels to St Petersburg to try his luck. Through a dalliance with one of the czarina's ladies in waiting he soon gains influence at court with his powers of healing and of hypnotism. But he also makes enemies who wish to see him dead.

IMDb

 

Rasputin: The Mad Monk is Daphne’s pick; it seems she wanted more Barbara Shelley after the Classic Era Grue Crew discussed Quatermass and the Pit (1965) in episode 93. She loves Shelley’s and Lee’s performances and she revels in the total “Hammer-ness” of the film which showcases Bernard Robinson’s production design and Rosemary Burrows’ costumes. Chad points out some of the historical discrepancies between Rasputin: The Mad Monk and the actual life of Grigori Rasputin. He also describes Lee’s performance as commanding the movie with a power that draws you in, labeling Rasputin one of his favorite Lee characters. Lee’s performance is also what captures Whitney’s attention. She’s especially impressed with his versatility in playing this hypnotic and malevolent character. Jeff’s on board with the Lee fanatics saying he can’t take his eyes off Lee’s forceful, hypnotic portrayal and adding that he loved the rest of the cast, the sets, and the wardrobe.

As of this writing, Rasputin: The Mad Monk is available to stream on the Classic Horror Movie Channel and as physical media on a Blu-ray disc from Shout! Factory.

Gruesome Magazine’s Decades of Horror: The Classic Era records a new episode every two weeks. Up next on their very flexible schedule is one chosen by Whitney, Ed Wood’s Plan 9 from Outer Space (1957). Oh yeah!
