Editorial Reviews

When Dr. Benson's experiments in suspended animation result in a man's death, he is forced to flee San Francisco with the police in hot pursuit. He boards a luxury liner to Australia but a shipwreck lands him and a handful of survivors on a remote tropical island. The island natives are NOT very welcoming until Dr. Benson demonstrates his godlike powers by reviving the comatose wife of the island chief. Now worshipped as a deity, the doctor's ego rages out of control as he begins to focus on his master plan: "Just as the natives worship me, so will the whole world." An ideal showcase for horror star Lionel Atwill, The Mad Doctor of Market Street (1942) is also notable as an early effort by cult director Joseph H. Lewis (The Big Combo, 1955).

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

For years I have been hoping for some of these B thrillers to be released on DVD. This film can be bought on its own or as part of a 5 discs set exclusive to Universal with limited distribution. While some younger viewers may not really get excited over such films, old Universal Horror fans will certainly remember Lionel Atwill starring in a string of these atmospheric thrillers.

'The Mad Doctor of Market Street' is one that I remembered the name more than the actually movie. It features Lionel Atwill as the title character and is a weird mix of evil scientist and exotic island hokum. This film runs just over an hour and is a fun thriller for those who enjoy the good old horror days.

The print here looks very good and Universal has included some extras including lots of stills, lobby cards, posters and some on screen trivia about the film. I doubt this film and the four others included on the box set Universal Cult Horror collection will see a general release.

Here is the best of a number of Universal horror classics finally on DVD! If you like this one, be sure to also get these other Universal classics: THE MAD GHOUL, MURDERS AT THE ZOO, and HOUSE OF HORRORS. All 4 belong in your Universal horror collection next to all of the Frankenstein, Dracula, Wolf Man, and Invisible Man movies that came out in the Thirties and Forties.

These DVD-R Made on Demand programs are great. This is a very nice looking DVD of one of the harder to get Universal Horror Movies.

A mad scientist flees San Francisco and ends up in control of the natives on an isolated island.
