Vintage 'delicious torture'
It is no masterpiece..., but it is an enduring entertainment, especially for Lugosi fans.
Creepy, atmospheric doings headlined by Karloff and Lugosi.
Lugosi is resplendent in his crisp formal attire as he spouts melodramatic dialogue, while Karloff skulks around trying to terrify with his crumpled countenance.
Love that "elevator bedroom" and the Poe-inspired basement!
Silly over the top horror, lamely directed, but with Lugosi at his most outrageous
A brilliant old horror movie with the great old horror actors! A must see.
Lugosi is a mad surgeon who saves a beautiful dancer's life and falls in love with her; Karloff is an escaped criminal who comes to the doctor begging for plastic surgery to change his appearance. Lugosi's campy villainy is in top form ("I like to torture!"), and there's more than a bit of Frankenstein's monster in Karloff's Bateman; the two icons make this tons of fun.
i don't think it gets much campier than this. so bad it's good? it's actually funny. there is a raven but this bears little relation to anything written by poe. lugosi hams it up as a mad doctor who has a poe obssession. karloff is an escaped criminal who wants a new face; instead lugosi disfigures him. this is part of the dotor's evil plan to possess a woman he's convinced is his 'lost lenore.' it's all pretty silly
So atmospheric and creepy--an aesthetic delight. In the minus column it's gimmicky as all hell. Riding Poe's coat tails for the sole purpose of sticking Dracula and Frankenstein in the same movie. It's silly, it's horrible, it's overacted and by today's standards it's more hilarious than scary. But I saw it when I was a kid and I loved it. And I still do.
