Come to think of it, Ramona the chimp was the only authentic actor among the crew.

Poor Bela.

March 29, 2019 | Full Review…

Lugosi is at his scary best, but the movie is awful, with Mitchell and Petrillo doing awful imitations of Martin and Lewis.

November 28, 2018 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

Truly bad film with Lugosi hamming it up, yet marginally entertaining.

December 19, 2005 | Rating: 1/5

Although it carries a horrid reputation, it is actually one of the greatest comedy films ever made.

October 22, 2004 | Rating: 5/5

Beaudine's films were delivered to a small and easily pleased audience with the haphazard rapidity of someone with nothing better to do. One can't help but admire his persistence.
