This is a creaky but entertaining relic from the early sound era. Basically an adventure edges into the horror category thanks to the fiendish torture devices used by the Oriental criminal mastermind - and his sadistic daughter.

An entertaining but politically incorrect hokum escapist adventure story.

...the film is filled with high camp, Karloff in droopy mustache and long, curled fingernails and Loy in slinky gown and dangly headdress.

A classic with a towering performance by Karloff as Fu Manchu. Only the movie's overt racism can be a mark against it today.
| Original Score: 4/5

There's no such thing as a really good Fu Manchu film, but Charles Brabin's The Mask of Fu Manchu is probably as close as one comes.
