Critic Reviews for Doctor Blood's Coffin
The surgical sequences were surely shocking for the time and still pack a punch. Sadly, inbetween these eye-openingly explicit episodes, this British horror tends towards either the plodding or the risible.
Audience Reviews for Doctor Blood's Coffin
Some decent make-up jobs aside, this one was largely boring, with more time than I'd care to mention spent watching our characters walk around a village the surrounding countryside, which is some really dynamic viewing, let me tellya. Pass, unless you're a completist for someone involved in this one.
Another low budget mad scientist movie that's not well made, but has a couple of good actors. I really was disappointed with it, it has such a cool title.
Blandly directed horror quickie apes the visual traits of Hammer Studios with varying degrees of success. Nicholas Roeg was a journeyman camera operator on this lurid project, which peaks with a gruesome heart transplant and falls downhill for the remaining 45 minutes. Hazel Court classes up the joint as a sexy, moralistic nurse with a heart of gold.
