The Black Cat Review

Those looking for an accurate adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe's short story should look elsewhere. About the only thing this film has in common with Poe's story is the fact that there is a black cat in the movie, and Lugosi's character is deathly afraid of black cats.

"17.10. Bela Lugosin ja Boris Karloffin tähdittämässä kauhuelokuvassa erittäin rehti, rehellinen ja varteenotettava jäpikkä matkustaa tekoaikakautensa esitystavan mukaisesti jatkeenaan roikkuvan vaimonsa kanssa Unkariin, jossa auto-onnettomuus ajaa pariskunnan omituisen porhon 30-lukulaisen futuristiseen asuntoon. Talossa alkaa tapahtua kummia, mutta The Black Cat koostuu lähinnä siitä, että Lugosi ja Karloff esittävät itseään. Kauhulegendojen campit maneerit jaksoivat kannatella"

"Honeymooning in Hungary, Joan and Peter Allison share their train compartment with Dr. Vitus Verdegast, a tragic man who is returning to the remains of the town he defended before becoming a prisoner of war for fifteen years. When their hotel-bound bus crashes in a mountain storm and Joan is injured, the travellers seek refuge in the home, built fortress-like upon the site of a bloody battlefield, of famed architect Hjalmar Poelzig, where Verdegast learns his wife's fate and grieves for his lost"
