    Tedious, silly stuff (i.e. Why do Parisian police officials talk in New York accents?) that is occasionally enlivened by the creepy, intense presences of Peter Lorre and Colin Clive as well as a couple offbeat scenes, like the one where a man about to be guillotined muses on the wonders of Hoover Damn. Give it a C 'cause at least it's quick (68 min.)

  • Epitome of a horror film

    For horror fans, this movie has it all... a mad surgeon (Peter Lorre at his finest), train wreck, guillotine, wax figures, atmosphere, along with Colin Clive (of Dr. Frankenstein fame) and May Beatty as the quintessential house keeper. What a great little film!

  • A peach of a film

    This movie is going on my all-time favorite horror movies list right behind The Uninvited. Thoroughly entertaining and worth a watch for the can't-miss cast. The only out-of-place actor is Ted Healy, who couldn't act his way out of a paper bag. (But then, as a major Three Stooges fan, Ted Healy is surely no friend of mine!) What a pleasure to watch Peter Lorre at the very start of his unforgettable American career - and he is totally freaky in this role. And it's very entertaining to see Sara Haden playing somebody besides Aunt Milly.

  • Peter Lorre At His Finest !

    Every piece of Art has to be viewed individually, not as an entire body of work, to find its true "Genius". The acting of Peter Lorre in this specific part should be seen for the balance of his action and his reactions, which achieve "art", which in a good portion are "subtle", especially his early scenes. I believe this is a "Masterwork", on his part. This also is a fine movie with the intense and engrossing, Colin Clive.

    What a creepy little film. Great atmosphere, genuinely eerie and Peter Lorre is amazing as a mad doctor. His performance is over the top, but he is supposed to be insane. Good cinematography and lighting. Short and fast paced. A unique and fascinating story that is very well done.

  • Fantastic

    In all areas that matter this indeed a fantastic film.

    Freund's cutting-edge classic presents Lorre's archetypal Dr. Gogol and the exalted Frances Drake.
