Critic Reviews for The Indian Tomb (Das indische Grabmal)

All Critics (6)

Perhaps Lang's most open-aired use of color, and wonderful, late-period entertainment.

Combustible Celluloid

If subterranean lepers appear in part one, there will be leper mayhem before part two is over.

Exciting, exotic and imaginative epic.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

It isn't nearly so precisely made as its predecessor, although more happens.

Audience Reviews for The Indian Tomb (Das indische Grabmal)

The decision to cut this story into two films has done it no favours.

Pretty much more of the same. A little more action, although that has the side effect of making the slow parts more noticeable. Like the half hour when our hero disappears... though that half hour also includes Debra Paget in that hubba-hubba snake charmer outfit, so all is forgiven. Plotwise it's a bit more satisfying than part one, but also less striking in its cinematography, since so much of it occurs in murky caves. And I know it's just my cultural bias speaking (and that subtitles wouldn't have worked as well) but man, it's just completely weird to hear Indians talking German all the time.
