      Matt Brunson Creative Loafing The faceless man comes alive, mayhem ensues, and audiences realize that, despite its monotony, the film is still easier to take than Paul W.S. Anderson's 2014 turkey Pompeii. Rated: 1.5/4 Feb 20, 2016 Full Review John Beifuss Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN) Its surfside climax is pure pulp poetry that functions as both a literal dramatization and a romantic evocation of the devastation wrought by the tides of time as they break against the eternal shore of love. Rated: 2.5/4 Nov 17, 2011 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews Recommended for only die-hard fans of Edward L. Cahn Rated: C- May 5, 2003 Full Review Read all reviews

      David W Not director Edward L. Cahn's best but if you're a completist like me when it comes to 50's drive-in, black and white, creature feature style horror flicks then it's worth a watch if you're feeling forgiving. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 09/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Thought it was one of the better horror films of the 1950s. It had a literate script and a good cast. Really different. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/15/23 Full Review Audience Member Boring 1950's B-movie thriller. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Really bad. It started off really slow and boring. And really didn't catch up until the last 15 minutes of the film. The film felt too much like a really bad version of The Mummy, especially since there was no Boris Karloff to save the film. The plot in general was lackluster and even though the film was just barely over an hour, it felt long and dragged out. Horrible acting. Annoying female lead, this one is a huge miss.
