A shy throwback to 30s/40s B-horror films
15 June 2003 | by EyeAskanceSee all my reviews

Survivors of a shipwreck come ashore on a tiny island inhabited by a mad Count and his sickly wife(who is kept confined within the subterranean dungeon of his castle). Foreseeable, derivative mayhem transpires.

Could DUNGEON OF HARROW really be from the 1960s? Besides the fact that it's in color, it bears the distinct stylistic flavor of poverty-row horror films released during and shortly after the Great Depression. Hilariously unpersuasive model ship in a storm effects are the most amusing part of an otherwise rather slumberous little movie which makes fairly good use of hand-me-down Gothic sets. On the whole, this is a barely median example of paint-by-numbers filmmaking...too tame and straightforwardly white-bread to interest the cult/trash-film alliance, and too slipshod and routine a production to impress any but the most forgiving horror fans.

3.5/10...unessential, but not exactly a head-to-toe failure either.
