The Mad Ghoul

∗∗∗∗∗∗∗∗∗∗ (5/10)

In a nutshell: Another decent, but not in any way brilliant, mad scientist film from Universal. This 1943 movie is one of the rawer of the horror films from Universal after the enforcement of the Hays code, and basically deals with temporary zombification. 2,634 more words

∗∗∗∗∗∗∗∗∗∗ (5/10)

In a nutshell: Director Edward Dmytryk cuts and pastes together a surprisingly coherent and enjoyable tale of a gorilla being turned into a woman by a mad John Carradine in his first mad scientist role. 4,128 more words
