...a musty but good-looking production, with Karloff splendid as the devoted surgeon pulled asunder by his own experiments and exploited by the underworld gang of tavern low-lifes who trick him into officializing their corpses-for-profit scheme.
You feel for Dr. Bolton as someone who has a dream he wants to fulfill but ultimately succumbs to his weaknesses as a human. Boris Karloff portrays the doctor with a complete range of emotions that go from his glory as a top rate surgeon to that of a criminal addicted to his own concoctions. One of the first films to deal with drug addiction back in the late 50s and early 60s. Truly a realistic horror that cuts deep. Highly Recommended!
This movie has a good cast but a lousy script. It starts out interesting, but then turns into another body snatcher horror movie.
Atmospheric old thriller about a doctor forced into a precarious alliance with ruthless criminals. Karloff and Lee are fantastic (as usual).
