BORIS KARLOFF & BELA LUGOSI
Excellent chiller All Movie Guide
Following the success of The Black Cat Karloff and Lugosi teamed up again for another classic slice of horror.
Lugosi gives one of his finest performances as the brilliant but deranged surgeon who becomes obsessed with a beautiful dancer after saving her life. He must have her but first must deal with her fiancé and father and plans to take care of them in his chamber of Edgar Allen Poe-inspired torture devices. To do the dirty work he enlists the aid of a wanted criminal (Karloff) whom he disfigures with the promise of restoring his features when the job is done.
