| Kind of silly but enjoyable
During his career, Bela Lugosi made a ton of cheap B-movies. "Night of Terror" is a bit higher budgeted and a bit less dumb than his usual Bs. Now don't get upset--when I call them dumb, I still like them...but the often have a lot of very silly plot lines and this one is no exception. A maniac is running about stabbing people and pinning articles from newspapers to their bodies. At the same time, a weirdo scientist is working on a secret formula to allow people to stop breathing for long extended periods with no ill effects! Believe it or not, Lugosi doesn't play either role but instead is an odd-ball servant in turban, Degar. Add to that a typical cliché of the age, a hot-shot reporter (Wallace Ford) and a another, the dopey cop, and you have a typical sort of film from the era. It's silly but a bit better written and a bit less silly--though the ending is strange because of its extended exposition to explain half the film! Worth seeing for Lugosi fans or fans of Bs.
