Movie Info

In this film, Bud Abbott and Lou Costello encounter none other than a scheming Boris Karloff who appears as the (in)credible mystic bent upon framing poor Costello as the perpetrator of a series of hotel murders. Lou's pal Bud, who plays the hotel detective, isn't much help either.

I'd love to have seen more of Karloff, but Costello more than makes up for that flaw.

Audience Reviews for Abbott and Costello Meet the Killer, Boris Karloff

My favorite and the best of the duo's comedy mystery series. With gags, killers, murder, mayhem, and much more. The scene with Costello constantly bumping into one of the dead bodies is classic and hilarious.

In this film Bud and Lou are working in a hotel where people are being murdered and Lou looks like the killer. Boris Karloff make short appearances to help sell the film I'm sure. Just not as funny as some of there other movies, missing that comedy found in the wolf man and Frankenstein Films. Still give it 3 1/2 stars

Another fun Abbott and Costello movie, this time they are suspected of murder, or is it the killer, Boris Karloff?
