A Sight to Behold
Forget all those naysayers that talk about Bela Lugosi's inability to act, or that he was only good in Dracula and hammed it up in everything else, or that all his Poverty Row films are cheaply made, thin pieces of poor excuses for celluloid. The Human Monster, also known as Dark Eyes of London, is cheaply made and does star Bela, but it is a wonderful film. It tells the story of Bela the insurance broker who loans money to people and signs them up for an insurance policy, only later to kill them for the money. Bela uses a home for the blind as a cover-up for his operation. Lugosi is simply wonderful in his dual roles, and is as menacing as ever playing both the brokering fiend and the head of the Blind Home. This film is low on set and costume design, and has some pretty average performers, but make no mistake that it is an average horror thriller. It simply is a sight to behold!
