      Felix Vasquez Jr. Cinema Crazed I'd love to have seen more of Karloff, but Costello more than makes up for that flaw. Nov 2, 2014 Full Review Read all reviews

      steve d Karloff added to the mix makes it extra fun. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Tim N Watching Bud Abbott dealing with that many dead bodies was absolutely hilarious. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 11/28/22 Full Review Audience Member A bit darker than their other films, but very entertaining. I particularly like the scene where Karloff hypnotized Lou. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member wrong year flixter dumbshits! how do I spell idiot? flixter! Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member A pretty good murder mystery conspiracy movie, but hardly an A&C movie. It lacked the charm, chemistry, and gags of good ol' A&C. Cheezy, humourous, and interesting, but a bit disappointing. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member My favorite and the best of the duo's comedy mystery series. With gags, killers, murder, mayhem, and much more. The scene with Costello constantly bumping into one of the dead bodies is classic and hilarious.
