| Universal once again
Other reviewers have pointed out the use of but redressed standing sets for the tower steps of Frankenstein and the stairway from Old Dark House. Take another look and you'll recognize the Frankenstein cellar, use as the attic here. It was continually redressed for White Zombie, Mystery of the Blue Room, here, and I suspect many other films. I think I recall the title music is from Werewolf on London. Nice to see Brandon Hurst, Dwight Frye, and Frank Reicher in another weird film..

The film itself is instantly recognizable as a Universal of the period. Good production values and acting, without producing a superior product. Still, it's fun, and worth seeing a second time.
