It stars Boris Karloff at his deliciously insane best as a mad scientist.

At first curiously intriguing, The Man with Nine Lives eventually becomes so silly that it's hard to take much of it -- if any of it -- seriously.

Audience Reviews for The Man with Nine Lives

Are you kidding.... this is a Karloff Klassic for those of us who grew up watching these films on TV in the 50's and 60's !!!!!

It was very good, and interesting. The actors and actresses were all good, and the look of the film was nice. The story kept me intrigued and I was surprised by parts.
