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.
Written by the man who put King Kong to paper. Fun to watch in context. The snappy dialogue b/w the American and the British detectives makes the unlikely events bearable. Lugosi is always bad in a charming way. He's got a hulking sidekick who does his killing for him. Worst make-up ever. In the end it's just fun.
Rather talky thriller features Bela Lugosi and a hulking blind monster.
Enjoyable Lugosi flick--Creepy little chiller!!
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.
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.
Le concept du film est a la base assez maladroit. De production britannique, il reprend les codes un peu depasses du cinema fantastique americain du debut des annees 30, en particulier films de monstres "Universal" tout en y ajoutant une dose de film noir, polar, detectives et tout ce qui va avec, beaucoup plus en vogue en cette fin des 30's, histoire d'etre plus aguicheur pour etre exporte au public americain. C'est d'ailleurs dans cette optique que Bela Lugosi (dont la carriere est en chute) est embauche.
Not a bad suspense movie. The only thing that sucks is that the sound for the movie shut off towards the end and I had to pretty much guess what happened.
This is a different story, and Lugosi gives a good performance, but it's still predictable and not made very well.
transactivism at its finest
