This review is from: The Black Sleep (DVD)
Saw stills of this film in old issues of Famous Monsters of Filmland. Always wanted to see it, but somehow it never seemed to be on TV or in the video stores. Finally decided to order this DVD. Very pleased with reproduction. Picture crisp and clear with plenty of detail. Bela is wasted in small role, likewise Carradine and mighty Tor. But for Bela completists like myself, just had to see it. Rathbone workmanlike but not memorable. Lon Chaney Jr. has fun chewing the scenery as 'Mongo'. Akim Tamirof steals the show as enthusiastic bodysnatcher, has the best lines too. Overall a professional 'B' picture but Tamirof and Chaney make it well worth watching for entertainment value, and Bela, Tor & Carradine likewise if you are as fond of them as I am. I enjoyed it. You might too.
