Critic Reviews for The Death Kiss

All Critics (3)

Three of the stars of the 1931 horror classic Dracula popped up the following year in this nifty little B flick that not only functions as an engaging murder-mystery but doubles as a peek behind the scenes at a small-scale movie studio.

Utterly forgettable and very much a product of the times, the film is evidence of a time when cheapie B productions were hardly interested in furthering the craft of sound in cinema.

Dazzles with a surprise ending and entertains throughout with a witty script.

Audience Reviews for The Death Kiss

Good for a mystery movie of the thirties, but it's still just as predictable as a mystery movie of the thirties.
