  • Mic in Port's rating of the film Dr. Cyclops

    More fun and ridiculous than anything serious or reflective, this is an enjoyable horror/comedy that makes great use of perspective and special effects to allow us to suspend disbelief just long enough to appreciate Albert Dekker's mad genius and the world he has showed us, however small and miniscule the final effect is. Schoedsack's direction is respectably decent here and the use of technicolor isn't wasted.
