Trivia

The pilot's title is never shown on screen: THE FACE IN THE TOMBSTONE MIRROR, easily available in the public domain. See more »

Goofs

The introductory narration does not come close to matching the lip movements of the face in the crystal ball. The face in the crystal ball had actually been shot about 15 years earlier for the introductions to Universal's "Inner Sanctum" series of features. See more »

Short well done monster movie.
24 February 2006 | by ChuckStraubSee all my reviews

Definitely something of interest for the lover of early monster movies. It's only a pilot and it's short but its good. If you liked the Frankenstein monster concept, this is a tidy tidbit of a good old monster movie that I think you will enjoy. This black and white gem has a good plot, good acting, great atmosphere and all you would expect from an old fashioned monster movie. Too bad the pilot was never picked up. What if there was a field of these little gems instead of just one. Oh well, we'll never know how a series would have done but do take a look at Tales of Frankenstein the one that was made. Have fun and enjoy this short well done monster movie.
