Audience Reviews for The Black Cat

I really want to see this movie again, I saw it a long time ago, and loved it, but I don't remember much of the story now. I do remember the great actors: Lugosi and Rathbone. I still recommend this movie.

Light chiller with great cast who all seem to be enjoying themselves. Sondergaard is wonderfully malevolent although with a humorous touch. The sporadic humor is what actually saves the picture from being just another creaky house thriller.
