'The Hunchback of Soho' is a kitch blast from start to finish!
23 January 2014 | by Darkling_ZeistSee all my reviews

To be honest these Edgar Wallace Krimi's can vacillate between grand amusement and leaden tedium;fortuitously this particularly zesty offering is directed by the highly skillful Alfred Vohrer who, as always, keeps the pace at delirious speeds. Plot is standard Wallace fare: a bizarre individual is killing young women and a considerable inheritance is involved. But the real kicker here is the truly astonishing and uber funky burlesque score by Peter Thomas. (I do think an appraisal of his work for film TV is well overdue) 'The Hunchback of Soho' is a kitsch blast from start to finish, and it might be my new fave Krimi! Alfred Vohrer I salute you!
