All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

The Beast With Five Fingers (1946)

Starring: Peter Lorre
Director: Robert Florey

After a pianist dies, several mysterious murders begin taking place. Is it the work of a person or an evil force still residing in the house?

My Take:
Peter Lorre was simply one of the best actors of his era (not just horror actors). He makes any movie a pleasure to watch. This movie is no exception.
The tale which rides the line of mystery and local superstition. It's a rather typical studio movie from the Hollywood's Golden Age, but that doesn't make the movie any less enjoyable.

Rating: In the middle
