“No matter what one may say about the melodramatic ideas here, there is no denying that it is far and away the most effective thing of its kind.” “A stirring grand-guignol type of picture, one that aroused so much excitement at the Mayfair yesterday that many in the audience laughed to cover their true feelings.” – Mordaunt Hall, The New York Times (1931)

“Looks like a Dracula plus, touching a new peak in horror plays and handled in production with supreme craftsmanship.” “The figure of the monster is a triumph of effect. It has the face and head of exactly the right distortions to convey a sense of the diabolical, but not enough to destroy the essential touch of monstrous human evil.” – Alfred Rushford Greason, Variety (1931)
