A tough slog
15 January 2014 | by Wizard-8See all my reviews

This Crown-International movie is a really tough slog to go through, even though the running time is only seventy-one minutes long. Before I get to why the movie simply does not work, I will admit that the movie has a little merit here and there. While the budget was obviously rock bottom, the filmmakers managed to squeeze every last penny out of the limited funds. The movie is well lit, well photographed, and with acceptable set dressing.

Unfortunately, the filmmakers simply didn't have a good script to work with. The movie is filled with endless scenes of characters talking. This results in the movie sorely lacking in horror sequences. And the few horror sequences that do happen are extremely tame. I think that even audiences back in 1961 would have thought that this movie was soft stuff, so I can only imagine what modern day horror fans would think of this toothless movie.
