Top Critic

A solid second-tier Gothic mystery-horror-thriller, the kind that's worth catching up with only once you've seen all the good ones.

Antagony & Ecstasy

Tepid gothic revenge melodrama.

Audience Reviews for The Black Castle

This is a good fifties movie in more the style of the old gothic universal monster movies. Plus it has the actors from those movies too.

Super Reviewer


Respectable production values and a good cast are plusses. The story didn?t always hold my interest though, but it did have a good atmosphere.
