REVIEWS

Review by Anonymous (posted on 24-Mar-2008)

Stinky, Stinky, Stinky! This flick is an all time DOG! Unfortunately for Bela Lugosi, this was about all the poor guy could get by now. After Dracula, he was type-cast as a vampire, or some other ghoul, and was never able to shake it off. The special effects of this film were terrible. Hokey dialogue, bad acting, weak plot. Other than Lugosi, no other named stars were probably even interested. Lugosi, as good doctor turned bad, was played as well as the inane lines would allow. This bomb probably added a few extra nails to Lugosi's career coffin. If he wasn't a morphine addict before this, he certainly would have had every reason to become one. As with Bela Lugosi, this movie should be buried in the ground, and R.I.P! Forever!
