Audience Reviews for The Brute Man

  • Jul 16, 2017
    Watching some of the old MST3K episodes available for streaming on Hulu and Netflix (there is a different random selection on each platform). Whether it is Joel or Mike watching these awful movies with the bots I do not envy their torture. Their snarky comments add some entertainment value, but my ratings are based on the movie's quality itself and not the commentary broadcast from the satellite of love. Rondo Hatton suffered from acromegaly, a slowly progressing disease of deformity. He starred here as Hal Moffat AKA 'The Creeper,' a sympathetic monster in the style of Frankenstein's creation. In fact it was the last film he appeared in and Rondo had died earlier in 1946 before this screened. Hal Moffat seeks revenge on former scientific partners who left him in a chemical accident. There is even a sweet romance as a blind piano teacher played by Jane Adams treats him with the human compassion that he so rarely receives. The police drama tracking down The Creeper is not very interesting, but the film noir aesthetic is quite good. And every time Rondo Hatton is on screen I found myself drawn in to his plight.

    This movie is the Toxic Avenger of the forties. Not a great movie, but it's interesting to watch.
