Critic Review - Variety

The resourcefulness shown in building the plot groundwork is lacking as the yarn gets into full swing. Cast members, headed by Margaret Sheridan and Kenneth Tobey, fail to communicate any real terror.

This is not really a horror movie, the fact that Kenneth Tobey and Maragaret Sheridan don't communicate any real terror is because Hawks didn't want them to. Hawks protagonists are professionals who don't show any sort of weakness. As for Sheridan, she's a Hawksian women, of course she isn't going to show she's scared. How can you be a film critic and apparently know nothing about Howard Hawks films?

You don't understand this movie is supposed to hold a feeling of suspense and quietness and by that I don't mean cheap scares like in the remake of Nightmare on Elm Street I mean meaning suspense when you never know when the thing is coming. A 50s classic
