Critic Reviews for The Ape Man
This is some family: A sister and a brother are a medium and a mad scientist, respectively.
One of Lugosi's Monogram cheapies; not very good, silly and campy.
Classically bad, so bizarre it's good.

Audience Reviews for The Ape Man
Don't get me wrong this is a bad movie. A bad bad bad movie, but there's something about it that's strangely appealing. (Not a recommendation)
Nothing too interesting. Bela Lugosi looked more like a werewolf than an apeman, and there's a lot of random scenes and boring murders. There's not really anything new to this film.
This is downright awful. Lugosi plays the whole movie hunched over like a gorilla, doing the worst acting I've seen from the man (and he doesn't have much depth to begin with from what I've seen); the man in the gorilla suit (Littlefield) does a poor job of playing an ape; and there is not enough direction to bring together the sparse story and the ridiculous characters and wrap it into a coherent whole.
