  1. FISCHER's rating of the film Murders in the Rue Morgue

    Un des grands rôles de Bela Lugosi, superbement dirigé et dérangé... www.cinefiches.com

  2. Spencer Draper's rating of the film Murders in the Rue Morgue

    Apparent re-editing harms the storyline, but the real stars are the direction, atmosphere, camerawork and of course the towering presence of Lugosi. Forever in the shadows of the great Universals, there is enough here to show promise of what Florey might have made of Frankenstein.

  3. Scott Barley's rating of the film Murders in the Rue Morgue

    Despite its flaws, this film is beautifully composed, with innovative camerawork and stunning set-design.

  4. AKFilmFan's rating of the film Murders in the Rue Morgue

    Expressionistic horror film is well-made but the execution of Poe's story is a little weak.

  5. Charles Coleman's rating of the film Murders in the Rue Morgue

    More 3 1/2 and more for the really impressive technical work on the film. The set design is astonishing. The camera flow is unbelievable, especially for its time. Bela is fun every time he's on screen and the film is short. I definitely got homoerotic undertones between Pierre and his roommate which was interesting. Other than that the acting sans Bela and the storyline was pretty weak. Still worth seeing though.
