Actually it's better in B&W
27 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As another user mentioned, I also caught this film by accident on my VCR -- and in b&w. I've since picked up a color DVD-R. In B&W it has more of the feel of a Mexican monster picture from the 50s-60s. By his presence, Akim Tamiroff elevates the picture to a slot above similar mid-sleaze trash. Even hobbling around on 2 canes (I imagine he thought a walker would look silly), he sparks up the interest every time he appears on screen (not often). Broderick Crawford doesn't, and Robert Hutton performs with the same level of "excellence" he always demonstrates. Watch it for Akim, and for being the only picture to equal the hilarious sfx of "The Giant Claw."
