Movie Info

Determined to develop a gaseous drug that allows patients to tolerate the difficulties of surgery, Dr. Bolton (Boris Karloff) devises numerous opium-based remedies, which he tests on himself. His experiments fail miserably in trials performed for his colleagues -- who include his own son, Jonathan (Francis Matthews) -- and Bolton is dismissed from his position. Having developed an addiction to opium, Bolton finds work treating the poor but falls in with grave robbers in order to get drugs.

Critic Reviews for Corridors of Blood

All Critics (1) | Fresh (1)

  • ...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.

Audience Reviews for Corridors of Blood

  • Jun 15, 2011
    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!

    One of the first films about opiate addiction. It's all rather fascinating.

    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).
