Robert Karol's rating of the film The Nutty Professor

Visually lush (like the bastard child of Tashlin and the Archers) and technically assured. What is most striking about it is the effortless adaptation of horror iconography for the first transformation sequence, with creature make-up that strikes a middle-ground between AIP and Universal, following it up with a POV sequence that draws influence from PEEPING TOM.
