Can still conjure some suspense. James Whale knew what he was doing. Fun pre-code horror.

A fun little gem! Not sure why it’s under the “Queer Horror” category, but entertaining nonetheless.

Not scary, but quite entertaining. (spoiler) I like how Morgan is whatever the plot needs him to be. Can't trust creepy old men.
