Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 49 ratings.
This is a great film to watch on a dark and stormy night (or anytime for that matter). Definitely one of Poverty Row's best. It has it all. Good story, fast pace, weird characters, weird scenes, good action, and scary music. What more can I say? Really conveys the feeling of the forties. A spunky reporter stays overnight in Bela's house. It's full of weirdness throughout-- Bela and his wife sleep in coffins, there's the necrophiliac hunchback, the dwarf, the weird assistant, secret panels, lightning and thunder, and a last minute rescue by Tris Coffin. A perfect combination of weirdness and good story telling!
Bela Lugosi starred in some pretty bad films. This isn't the worst but it's sure in the running.
Interesting Lugosi film definitly has its moments. Mystery builds as repoter goes to Lugosi's mansion to find out the truth of why young brides are seemingly dying at the alter. Some absurd situations and dialogue but still worth a look.
There are some signs of wear in the film used as the video master, but by and large, the DVD picture and audio quality are very good. Nice sharp picture with good contrast even in the dark scenes and the dialogue is clear and understandable with minimal background noise or hum. The movie itself is quite good with the director building the suspense nicely. The women in the film are quite pretty, and Mr. Lugosi is quite creepy. A fast paced hour of fun. Nice job, Alpha!
