Night Monster Movie Review

A crippled millionaire invites a handful of doctors to his remote mansion to assess himself and his apparently insane sister. Once everybody arrives they start dying off one by one. This 1942 murder mystery is slow...oh so slow. The only thing that will likely get you through the first hour of this movie is appreciation of the direction...and caffeine. Lots of caffeine.

Looking for a monster? This is as close as we get

A little name recognition will carry you along the way as well--horror legend Bela Lugosi phones in a performance, Lionel Atwill does a decent job as Dr. King, and Hitchcock fans will recognize Janet Shaw from the classic Shadow of a Doubt. Night Monster plods through about an hour before things pick up toward the end, when we are presented with a few murders, an unsettling scene or two, and an ending that is as abrupt as it is predictable. This movie isn't really as bad as it is just bland. Should you decide to check it out be sure you've had a nap before, and possibly a pot of coffee during.
