I really enjoyed this film when I was growing up, and think it's one of the better anthology movies ever done. It maintains a consistently creepy tone throughout (much of which emanates from Rod Steiger's strangely tattooed title character), and some of the segments stick in my brain even today, particularly a story where space explorers are stranded on a planet where it never stops pouring rain, hopelessly slogging through a drenched landscape covered with gigantic mushrooms. The film, from Ray Bradbury's book, also presages the idea of virtual reality in its final chapter. Startling, often psychedelic visuals and solid performances make this a wonderfully entertaining work worth watching, and I'm pleased to see it finally out on DVD.
