  • Granted, at bottom, the film's little more than an extended morality play of the sort that viewers were accustomed to from TV shows like The Twilight Zone or the Boris Karloff-hosted Thriller. But with its elegant set and costume design, solid performances from Rolfe and Homolka especially, and tongue-in-cheek humor, Mr. Sardonicus stands (alongside The Tingler, I would argue) as one of William Castle's strongest, most memorable efforts.
