2.0 out of 5 stars Forgotten Terrors should be Forgotten, January 18, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Forgotten Terrors (The Phantom / The Intruder / Tangled Destinies / Dead Men Walk) (DVD)
Fans of the old time tinglers needn't bother with this one. The two stars are for the dual role played by George Zucco in Dead Men Walk. The other three movies should never have been made. The talent of Guinn "Big Boy" Williams was totally wasted in "The Phantom". The ghoulish character that everyone is led to believe is the phantom is merely one of his nutty henchmen who seems to terrify his prey (mainly an overly exciteable maid) by entering a room shielding his face with a cape and when within striking distance merely wiggles his fingers and leers at his intended victim. The phantom is actually a doctor in an insane asylum that has a hidden passage to his underground laboratory. It seems every creaky old house or castle in the movies from this era had secret passageways. I guess the phantom doctor's scheme is brain transfers from sane people to insane people. This movie is not scary or funny! Another hour you're not going to get back is the equally lame "Intruder" about a murder & missing jewels on the ocean liner S.S. Intruder. All the main characters wind-up shipwrecked on a remote island that features a man in a monkey suit and his insane friend who hasn't seen a barber in at least 10 yrs. Winds up the detective is the murderer and thief. So boring who cares. Survivors are rescued by a french ocean liner. The comic relief drunk ends the movie shooting a revolver in the air and no one including the crew seems to care. Tangled destinies is about a group of people flying to LA who make a forced landing during a storm. They take refuge in a vacant farm house. Even though the house is abandoned there is soup on the stove waiting for our cast to arrive. The actual owner of the home never shows up during the movie. This is yet another tiresome plot concerning stolen jewels. After a number of accusers try to discover the thief, it winds up the preacher being the culprit. Again who cares? Dead Man Walk was the only film of any redeeming value due to George "Spooky" Zucco's dual performance of the good & evil brother combination. The evil brother is a vampire who we're told can only be killed by fire (a new one on me). I thought sun light or a good old fashioned stake in the heart would work. Anyway the good/bad brother combination eventually has a showdown that ends in a fiery conflagration. At least this film had an eerie, noirish atmosphere to it. Dead Men Walk can be obtained separately from the trio of losers mentioned above. BEWARE of this DVD! Don't waste your time or your money on this collection. You have been warned!
