Matt Brunson Film Frenzy A trippy tale. Rated: 3/4 Mar 13, 2023 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews It stars Boris Karloff at his deliciously insane best as a mad scientist. Rated: B- Nov 2, 2009 Full Review Christopher Null Filmcritic.com At first curiously intriguing, The Man with Nine Lives eventually becomes so silly that it's hard to take much of it -- if any of it -- seriously. Rated: 2.5/5 Jan 1, 2006 Full Review Read all reviews

Audience Member Interesting concept. Boris Karloff was very good as a "Legit Scientist". Great cast! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member OK thriller, rather slowly-paced. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Are you kidding.... this is a Karloff Klassic for those of us who grew up watching these films on TV in the 50's and 60's !!!!! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Audience Member Great chiller from the old days of B horror films--A welcome new twist on the whole mad scientist genre!! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member lol it is definitely really good for those times. But lets be honest, Coffee barely wakes me up, yet alone revive me from a frozen preservation. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member It was very good, and interesting. The actors and actresses were all good, and the look of the film was nice. The story kept me intrigued and I was surprised by parts. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Read all reviews
