The Frozen Ghost

The Frozen Ghost ★★★½

I am enjoying the series of Inner Sanctum movies way more than I probably have a right to given its reputation.... though have not dared approach the first one yet as that seems to be the major stinker and don't want to have my fun spoilt.

THE FROZEN GHOST has so many neat touches to it.... mentalist acts gone wrong, creepy wax museums, wonderfully lit, strange camera angles and zooms, a character who sounds like Peter Lorre and an inspector who goes around all rooms straightening paintings and mirrors. Plus some wonky dialogue and the wonderfully confused Lon Chaney Jr doing his swanky best to be a babe magnet.

It shouldn't work.... but it does for me,
