Movie Info

This big-budget remake of 1932's Murders in the Rue Morgue, which was based on an Edgar Allen Poe tale, this horror outing was originally shown in 3-D and tells the grim tale of how a mad zookeeper and his murderous, thieving monkey terrorized Parisians in the early 1900s. A young Merv Griffin plays a bit part as a college student.

Audience Reviews for Phantom of the Rue Morgue

  • Jan 28, 2012
    Okay reworking of the Poe classic is hampered by a lack of period feeling, the sets seem like sets. Also Karl Malden is fine in the beginning but descends into full on ham by the end. Original 3-D effects are obvious while watching but have lost their impact.
