I agree. Walpole was not really much good at evoking horror. However, the plot is ok and Walpole was influential in the revival of Gothic as a respectable style in literature and architecture. (In the 18th century, Gothic was thought to be a rather barbarous style. Walpole's 'Strawberry Hill' at Twickenham caused some people to revise this opinion.)
