Critic Reviews for The Black Castle

All Critics (3)

The story is sturdy and the sets impressive.

August 30, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

A solid second-tier Gothic mystery-horror-thriller, the kind that's worth catching up with only once you've seen all the good ones.

June 20, 2015 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

Tepid gothic revenge melodrama.

Audience Reviews for The Black Castle

This is a good fifties movie in more the style of the old gothic universal monster movies. Plus it has the actors from those movies too.
