Movie Info

This enjoyably twisted British thriller was shot back-to-back with the equally warped Haunted Strangler and is one of the first films of any genre to address the subject of drug addiction. It stars Boris Karloff as Dr. Thomas Bolton, a London surgeon who believes he has developed a safe and effective anesthetic serum which he hopes will revolutionize the world of medicine. Unfortunately, a demonstration of the drug before a panel of his peers ends in a horrific mishap -- with his patient

...a musty but good-looking production, with Karloff splendid as the devoted surgeon pulled asunder by his own experiments and exploited by the underworld gang of tavern low-lifes who trick him into officializing their corpses-for-profit scheme.

Audience Reviews for Corridors of Blood

This movie has a good cast but a lousy script. It starts out interesting, but then turns into another body snatcher horror movie.

Atmospheric old thriller about a doctor forced into a precarious alliance with ruthless criminals. Karloff and Lee are fantastic (as usual).

You feel for Dr. Bolton as someone who has a dream he wants to fulfill but ultimately succumbs to his weaknesses as a human. Boris Karloff portrays the doctor with a complete range of emotions that go from his glory as a top rate surgeon to that of a criminal addicted to his own concoctions. One of the first films to deal with drug addiction back in the late 50s and early 60s. Truly a realistic horror that cuts deep. Highly Recommended!
