The joys of the film -- and there are some -- come almost entirely from the interplay of Karloff and Lorre.

Audience Reviews for The Boogie Man Will Get You

I really enjoyed this movie, it's sort of a spoof of mad scientist movies in a way, and it's really funny. I loved Lorre, he always has this kitten in his pocket, he's so cute! This movie is entertaining and fun.
