Movie Info

In London, philanthropist Dr. Orloff (Bela Lugosi) volunteers his services at a home for blind men, which serves as a cover for his notorious exploits. On the side, Orloff runs an insurance company that offers loans to desperate, unattached men, whom he convinces to list him as a beneficiary. With the aid of a blind man from the home, Orloff then coldly murders the men to collect the insurance. Although the police begin an investigation, Orloff brazenly continues the brutal killings.

Critic Reviews for The Human Monster

Audience Reviews for The Human Monster

  • Sep 25, 2018
    Bela Lugosi is properly menacing in this, one feature that uses his ominous talents to decent effect, as a "doctor" who doubles as an insurance agent (?) (never heard of that one before, didja?), killing likely victims for the policy payoffs. His aide in this scam is a big hulking "monster" (just a big, dumb blind guy) that strangles his quarry. Better than a great many of Lugosi's films and worthy of your time.

    This is a different story, and Lugosi gives a good performance, but it's still predictable and not made very well.
