Manfish is based on two entwined Edgar Allan Poe stories: 'The Gold Bug' and 'The Tell-Tale Heart'. It's an eerie seaworthy treasure seeking adventure film with a quite a few thrills that kept me glued to the screen.
Captain Brannigan (John Bromfield) of the ship named Manfish - is a man who becomes obsessed with finding treasures of gold. While Swede (Lon Chaney Jr.) is a man with a heart-of-gold and loves his only home "The Manfish". The two sets sail on an adventure that leads them into a world of treachery, murder and gold - lots of gold.
The movie is not actually classified as a horror film but it is a film that some of the fans of horror might enjoy - especially if they like Lon Chaney, Jr.
