Audience Reviews for Bluebeard

  • May 15, 2013
    A painter/puppeteer kills his models in 19th century Paris. A dusty and lifeless serial killer relic; when John Carradine is acting (rather than over-acting) he's actually a pretty dull fellow. Hard to believe this was made by the same director who made the B-masterpieces THE BLACK CAT and DETOUR; even harder to believe that 100% positive Rotten Tomatoes rating.

    Edgar G. Ulmer may be considered a bit of a genius when it came to making bottom-of-the-bucket budget films for the studio PRC, but he simply can't raise the quality of every picture above its limitations. There are occasional signs of creativity in the camera angles, but the film, including a couple action shots, is nearly always badly lit. The script and Carradine's performance as a painter/puppeteer/serial killer do not evoke strong feelings for the characters in one direction or the other.
