Gorilla my dreams--LOL--sorry, but I just had to say that!!
9 August 2000 | by (Parkersburg, West Virginia) – See all my reviews

Typical 1940's Universal monster film. It is enjoyable and is a nice way to spend an hour. The cinematography, when they show the sanitarium, is spooky looking. Now that I think of it, it looks like the same mansion that was used in "Munster, Go Home". Could have been, as both of these films were filmed at Universal!! I liked this film, but then I like all of those Universal monster films.
