Dr. Blood's Coffin 1961 Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
Another reviewer has already given a good overview of the plot of the movie, I just wanted to add a few comments. No, there is never actually any coffin anywhere in the movie so I have to wonder where the title came from. I assume anyone reading this review is old school like me and already appreciated these kind of well-made thrillers back when they were 10 years old and actually thought they were really scary. This is one you’d definitely have seen on Thriller Theater on Saturday afternoons back in the 70’s and early 80’s, and it would have been considered one of the better ones. This one is easily better made than say, “The Terror” or ‘The Dunwich Horror’, but maybe not quite as good as say, “Five million years to Earth”. It still has a good story, though, and sticks to it. No blood all over the walls and no guy with a giant knife slashing peoples’ heads off for fun. No stupid subplots or bad acting either. I write this review now because at current age 36 I just saw this yesterday for the first time and it fit right in to the memories I have of watching those other great British Horror films I used to get really into as a child and young teenager. So check this one out, you can’t beat the price on it right now either.
