The first -- and in most ways, the best -- of Bela Lugosi's 'Monogram Nine' from legendarily penurious producer Sam Katzman.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

An absurdist masterpiece for its title alone

Full Review… | February 13, 2010

It's one of those laughable and forgettable cheapie films that should be appealing to cult fans and those viewers who can never get enough of Bela.

Nothing too special. Bela Lugosi was alright in this film, but the story isn't nothing spectacular but it's a decent mystery and the ending was alright, but there's a lot of confusing and rushed parts.

Ridiculously titled movie which, unfortunately, does not rise above that level. Lugosi is much the same in all of his roles. The other actors are decent, but the concept is absurd and underdeveloped. From identical brothers that no one knew about to characters returning to life only to die again moments later, there is no internal logic. Couldn't get into it.
