  • msmichel's rating of the film The Monster Maker

    Talky but compact B horror flick from prolific director Newfield that finds a scientist inflict a pianist with a monstrous deformity to blackmail the pianist's daughter into marrying him. Of note is the fine makeup job that seemed sophisticated for the time period. Interesting that actor J. Carrol Naish playing the stock character mad scientist was nominated for an Oscar earlier that year for 'Sahara'.
