Another great 1940s Lugosi "horror"
12 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you can overlook some really lame comic relief, this is another great time for Lugosi fans, and a great double bill can be made with this and Lugosi's 'Scared To Death'. Lugosi is the menacing Dr. Marlowe, who tried to resurrect his long-dead wife, using voodoo, a fake roadblock to lure young girls off the main road, and a pair of stooges waiting to kidnap them and bring them to his most humble laboratory. Said residence has a number of previous, unsuccessful attempts encased in glass throughout the corridors. All goes according to plans, until a curious reporter gets involved with a girl who goes missing.

Lugosi is every bit a good here as in Dracula, and the movie looks good despite its low budget. As I said earlier, the only detriment to the film is a bit of really lame comic relief, seemingly intended for some other movie.

An obscure Lugosi quickie, which deserves a cult following.
