I Tried To Watch It - BORING
19 April 2015 | by Rainey-DawnSee all my reviews

This movie is NOT a horror-thriller! It's more like a comedy-horror - seriously it is. I was expecting this film to be a fairly decent older horror-thriller but it's just BORING. People in the film giving "comical scared looks" on their faces, maid & chauffeur are a comedy-duo, nothing really happening at all in the film - just fake, comical scared looks and senseless gun shooting inside the manor house hitting nothing - horrible shooters.

If you are looking for a comical styled classic thriller-horror then you might like this film. Otherwise I would pass this one by - much better horror-thriller films to watch from the same year (1931).

I hate to give bad reviews but this movie is NOT what I was expecting it to be. It's hyped as a horror-thriller but it's a comedy-horror-thriller.

2/10
