    I never heard of this movie until last month. I took a chance with this film and recorded it at the last minute. It was pretty good and better than I thought it would be. I noticed that there was one character that when ever he was on screen, they always added comedy to the scene. That makes it the second horror movie I've heard of that isn't a horror-comedy but has a few comedic scenes in it, the other being Them! (1954). I also noticed the difference in the way it was colorized than in films made not even 10 years apart from this. I thought it was just a black and white print with the color added in with colored pencils or crayons just like the colorized version of The Thing from Another World. I found out during Robert Osborne's after-movie comments that the number of colors was limited because they were using two-strip Technicolor which had a very limited range of colors. It's worth a watch. And let's be glad three-strip Technicolor was made before The Wizard of Oz, or else it would've looked something like this.

    Watch as a historical film, Fay Wray looks spectacular, Lionel Atwill is Terrific! But the story suffers due to lack of a coherent script. Killings , synthetic flesh, and more than enough red herrings to fill a tuna tub. Interesting lighting, really nice sets,two strip technicolor, and atmospheric, but no sense of direction. 3 stars out of 5, barely.

    Doctor X is terrible, but you still have to see it for its two-strip Technicolor and great sets.

    Amazing, considering it was made in 1932. The special effects are great, and the color production, so unusual for the time is awesome. The story is a bit hokey, and the acting is a little over the top, but it is fascinating to watch and a real piece of cinematic history.

  • Good & Scary! (For its time.)

    This is a horror classic of 1932.Fay Wray made this just before King Kong.Lionel Atwill is his usual superb self as Dr. X.It's an early try at technicolor,using a 2-color system.(Everything seems to be brown or green!)The film has eerie settings,murder & cannibalism.This is a don't miss for fans of the genre.(And Fay Wray is gorgeous.)
