  1. FISCHER's rating of the film The Beast With Five Fingers

    Une curiosité, rarement distribuée dans l'Hexagone qui permet de retrouver un Peter Lorre, au meilleure de sa forme. www.cinefiches.com

  2. Diego Carrera's rating of the film The Beast With Five Fingers

    Peter Lorre vs. The Hand: the best fight of the 1940s.

  3. Wee Hunk's rating of the film The Beast With Five Fingers

    The main problem with this film is most of the actors aren't that good, and then there's Peter Lorre. It's like throwing pearls to swine. These are pretty boring actors. The screen only comes alive when he's in the picture. Jack Warner hated Lorre, and this was his last picture with Warner Brothers.

  4. Landen Celano's rating of the film The Beast With Five Fingers

    Lacks consistent tone and wavers too loosely between intrigue and shock without excelling at either. Peter Lorre is always great, but Mad Love (1935) is vastly better alternative.

  5. Christopher R. Smith's rating of the film The Beast With Five Fingers

    Very entertaining classic horror melodrama features another great tortured performance from Peter Lorre. Florey evokes some extraordinary gothic atmosphere with great black and white cinematography and period production design, and the original story (reportedly conceived by an uncredited Luis Bunuel) is sharply scripted by Curt Siodmak with a prevailing sense of absurdist wit. A must for classic horror fans.
