Antagony & Ecstasy

A strong, well above-average effort in almost every way, there's no evidence at all that Lewton's first brush with money and success dulled his instincts.

Researchers and healers are closer to the subjects on the autopsy slab than to their living patients in this acerbic chimera of shadow and sacrifice

Settings are inexpensive but sufficient for the needs. Production values, in general, however, aid materially in making this picture a winner.

Even though this film is taken from a modest stage play of a few seasons back, its humors are as stale and mechanical as those of the oldest such farce.

Combustible Celluloid

This is the most elegant and leisurely of the Val Lewton horror films, up until the whopper of an ending.

It is certainly far more accomplished and evocative than some critics have suggested.

One of the lesser products of Val Lewton's years as the head of RKO's horror-film unit.
