Editorial Reviews

Boris Karloff, the greatest horror star of all time, takes center stage in this menagerie of horrors (Motion Picture Daily) that spins out shock after shock (Boxoffice). Like a deadly potion bubbling with eerie mansions, secret experiments and a warning never to look in the basement, this is pure haunted-house hokum all the way (Los Angeles Times)!


An English scientist entertains a young American visitor, serving up tea, terror and a beautiful daughter who is soon torn between her father’s evil ways and her need to protect the man she loves from a diabolical end.

Customer Reviews

This movie is a "must have" for all horror film fans.
Patroon
Susan's mother Leticia (Freda Jackson) urges him to take Susan away--but before such can happen peculiar things begin to occur.
Gary F. Taylor
This H.P. Lovecraft adaptation is rich only in mood and setting, but falls flat on suspense or any true horror.
Carl Manes

I know some people will groan about this, but I feel this movie has never gotten the credit it deserves. Mostly because there is a tendency to look with prejudice upon it's leading man, Nick Adams, because of the slow-down in his carreer just before his untimely and mysterious death at age 36. My father was a big naysayer of Nick Adams. His prejudice stemmed from Adams' participation in Rebel Without A Cause, a film my father saw as encouragement for youth to openly oppose their parents, without showing the parents' side of the story. However, if you watch Nick Adams at work, and keep an open mind, whether it's in one of his most famous films, like Rebel Without A Cause or Mister Roberts, or in his now legendary television series, The Rebel, you'll see a talented actor who was at ease in front of the camera. In spite of his young features (at times described as baby-faced) Adams had a screen presence that was strong and capable. Over time, my attitude of him has turned from thinking of him as a so-so player, to that of an underrated actor of whom life ended before something better came along. After you've viewed enough B-grade and lesser horror films, you begin to appreciate when a qualified and talented actor is given the lead in one of these films. And in Die Monster Die, Nick Adams was perhaps at his best during that slow-down period of his life. It's certainly one of the better B-grade horror films he was forced to work in at the time. And it's one of the better releases by MGM in its Midnight Movies collection.
If you look at the title alone, you're likely to pass on this one, thinking Cheese all the way, but don't let the title stop you. I think this was one of the most original science fiction/horror films to come out of American International pictures. It's based on an H.P.

Format: DVD
I have always liked this film, even though checking through reference books one may find critical comments. It is true that a mistake was made in changing H.P Lovecraft's setting from New England (which of course was the deeply-felt source of all of his horror concepts) to England itself. And the story does not do full justice to his brilliant original, which is a classic of horror-literature. But that aside, the film is extremely atmospheric, and has strong performances by Karloff and all the other actors (including Nick Adams, who despite odd casting does a decent job as a modern American adrift in a strange old-world setting). And on top of that it has one of the eeriest scenes in all horror films, where Nick Adams and the beautiful Susan Farmer sneak into a greenhouse, which is a source of mystery throughout the entire film, and discover a menagerie of mutated monsters, illuminated only by flashlight. This scene is a high-water mark in monster special FX, even though it is very brief. Definitely worth owning in a DVD quality release!

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Gary F. Taylor HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on June 9, 2012
Format: DVD
Although his short stories and novellas were influential among other writers, H.P. Lovecraft (1890-1037) was not widely recognized during his life time, and it wasn't until the 1950s that his work began to reach a wide audience. By the 1960s his reputation was such that the film industry began to look to him for ideas. The 1965 DIE, MONSTER, DIE!, was based on Lovecraft's 1927 "The Colour Out of Space."

Lovecraft fans may recognize the source, but in truth there's not much of the original story left. Stephen Reinhart (Nick Adams) goes to visit his college girlfriend Susan Witley (Susan Farmer) at her family's estate in England. The locals will scarcely give him directions to the house, and when he arrives he finds Susan's father Nahum (Boris Karloff) even less welcoming. Susan's mother Leticia (Freda Jackson) urges him to take Susan away--but before such can happen peculiar things begin to occur. There is a woman in black who stalks the grouds, glowing lights from the green house, a suddenly dead butler, and Mrs. Witley herself, who seems to be undergoing an unpleasant transformation in her bedroom.

American Internation Pictures productions are always cheap and are usually crap, and certainly DIE, MONSTER, DIE! is never going to win any critical awards. It is extremely, extremely slow. Even the opening credits seem unduely prolonged. The script is truly ridiculous and most of the special effects aren't. Adams is wasted in the role of standard hero and Susan Farmer is stuck playing one of the most ridiculously helpless heroines ever placed on screen. One also wonders how the wheelchair-bound Karloff is able to get around such a large mansion so rapidly. Nonetheless, Karloff and Jackson do extremely well, and the art direction is quite interesting. This isn't a film I'd care to sit through a second time, but it's a reasonably interesting way to pass a rainy day.

Boris Karloff stars as Nahum Witley in this 1965 movie which is also known as "Monster of Terror". The film is a loose adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft's story The Colour Out of Space. The picture quality is great (though the first few minutes are soft) and the audio quality is fairly good for mono. Fans of the film will be pleased with the presentation. The only special feature is the trailer which is devoid of narration.
