The Beast with Five Fingers Reviews

John Beifuss
Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

As it torments Lorre, the hand becomes a manifestation of the metaphorical notion of a hand tugging us toward our destiny or reaching from the past to punish us; an alternate, utterly appropriate title might be 'The Hand of Fate.'

This is fairly spooky despite its silly story and modest budget

Peter Lorre in one of his best, and one of director Robert Florey's visual and psychological best.

Wastes a captivating original premise and some fine performances with a stiff script and a cop-out ending.
