Great Horror Film from the 60's
2 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The introduction of the Golem statue sets an eerie atmosphere for the rest of the film. It tries to haunt you with the mystery that surrounds it. It is intentional for this story to move at a slower pace so the atmosphere can build. I thought it was a pretty cool effect for it's time. People growing up with today's CGI effects probably will not appreciate this. No blood and gore are necessary. Roddy McDowall adds to the fun with a great performance. His character is obviously disturbed and becomes more so as his obsession with the Golem grows. The saying "Power tends to corrupt; absolute power corrupts absolutely" applies here. Try not to compare it to today's films. Just enjoy an unusual story and don't get hung up on the effects of it's day. Also, to my knowledge there is only one other Golem film that exists, the 1920 German silent version called "Golem, wie er in die Welt kam, Der".
