A good story, and it's got Lugosi, but it could have been a lot better.
November 17, 2009
Respectable low budget classic horror movies, enhanced by the presence of Bela Lugosi before his demise. Good atmosphere, not great by any means, but interesting to watch.

Lugosi can't save it, but his performance isn't his worse. The story isn't entirely terrible, but it's not really interesting enough. The rest of the characters are pretty bland at most, and even the most exciting moments feel rather lackluster.

One of the better B flicks, with Lugosi and a good bit of tension. And reanimation.
January 27, 2013
More of a straight thriller with the odd horrific moment. It's all quite pedestrian unfortunately, even Lugosi doesn't look that interested in this one.

a little slow at times but still pretty good film with bela lugosi.

BOWERY AT MIDNIGHT (1942); a typical low-budget "B" horror film from the 1940's with two things an imaginative plot for its time and the presence of the great Bela Lugosi. But sadly it also is logged down by the horrible type casting done by these sorts of studios, Lugosi is once again cast as the evil foreign sounding villain with a minor twist he appears to be a good hearted man running a soup kitchen in the Bowery (the poor area of whatever city it takes place in). But in actual fact he is a master criminal who is also a university professor as well who uses any known criminals in soup kitchen to exploit in his fiendish plans, BUT a typical red blooded American man becomes the hero of the film to save his gal from the evil hands of Lugosi.

Overall thoughts on BOWERY AT MIDNIGHT: it's just another Lugosi "B" horror film form the middle part of his American acting career before it all came to an end 13 years later with the beloved Cult hero Edward. D. Wood. JR (AKA Ed Wood). This film had a somewhat interesting plot but was ruined by wooden acting by the supporting cast and the typecasting of Lugosi. The only saving grace of this film, Lugosi commanding performance; The Rating: 50%.

Enjoyable crime drama. The DVD cover of my copy of the film is very misleading, but, other than that, it was a pretty good movie. Bela is terrific. Recommended for a free watch online.

Hardly worth any special attention. It has a pretty basic plot and some of the acting from minor characters was atrocious (i.e., the jewellery store owner). But I enjoyed it to an extent.

Plus, Bela Lugosi.

Very watchable, but just becomes another movie with it being too simple. It's got a story, and it's not boring, and has some interesting moments.
