Critic Reviews for The Man with Nine Lives

All Critics (2)

It stars Boris Karloff at his deliciously insane best as a mad scientist.

November 2, 2009 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

At first curiously intriguing, The Man with Nine Lives eventually becomes so silly that it's hard to take much of it -- if any of it -- seriously.
