The chief criticism of this two-reel production is that it has so many repellent situations. The author, portrayed very effectively by Alec Francis, takes opium and cocaine to stimulate his imagination. The scenes in which he has visions and gradually loses his mind are very unpleasant; also the scenes in and about the sanitarium for insane patients. As a preachment against the use of drugs this is effective, but as entertainment it is too strong. The photography and acting are good. - The Moving Picture World, March 29, 1913
