Doctor X ★★★

HoopTober 4.0 - Movie #9 - Doctor X

A neat movie that has the same styling as similar "mad scientist" movies of the era. The scenes involving the scientists gathered for the experiment are some great horror scenes, with creepy characters and a great laboratory set piece. The reveal of the killer, while predictable, was the best part of the movie. SYNTHETIC FLESH!
The only downside to this movie was the terrible reporter played by Lee Tracy. His characters only purpose was to provide comic relief and to be a love interest for Fay Wray. I just stopped paying attention half way through his scenes, I mean how many times can a joy buzzer be funny? We get it.
Overall, if you're a fan of the universal monster movies, this movie, while a step down, is still enjoyable.
