All Critics (4)

This horror film from Edgar G. Ulmer suffers from a much lower budget, but nonetheless retains the touch of its poverty-row master.

Audience Reviews for Daughter of Dr. Jekyll


Heroic ultra low budget gem from underated director Edgar G. Ulmer. A classic campy opening sequence makes you fall in love with the horror hybrid instantly. Gloria Talbot is lovely and brilliant in her role.
