Weird but worth a look!, 26 November 2000
Author: ( from Toronto, Ontario

Dr.Death is an offbeat horror film about a man who visits a strange doctor in hopes that the latter can bring his dead wife back to life. Of course, things don't go as planned. The film has that early 70s, eerie, anything-can-happen feel and the actors, though not household names, are quite good. There are some truly unnerving moments and a surprise appearance by Moe from the 3 Stooges in a bit role, filmed shortly before his death. The film starts to lose it's strength as it nears the end but it's still a memorable experience.
