Ozus' World Movie Reviews

Lugosi is in fine form as the "brilliant, but unbalanced" Orloff and seems to be enjoying every last drop of his incredible perfidy.

Audience Reviews for The Dark Eyes of London (Dead Eyes of London) (The Human Monster) (Dr. Orloff)

½

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

Super Reviewer

Decent horror flick with some nice bits and overall a good story. Bela Lugosi was good and there were some ok characters. A few scenes were slow but it wasn't too bad.

½

Banal story with no twists and no drama or suspense. Lugosi is merely acceptable. The "reveal" was easy to guess and the ending was just as you'd expect. Not worth your time.
