There is an air of inquiry about you that immediately offends my deepest nature! Something suggesting Scotland Yard, the French Sécurité, the Italian Carabinieri, the Turkish Polizi, and other minions of the law!

Scared To Death is the only colour movie Bela Lougosi made and I found this quite enjoyable. You wouldn't expect such a movie on this low budget to be made in colour.
A woman tells how she was scared by a hypnotist and mad doctor. She tells us about murder and how people were hypnotised. One morning, she receives a strange parcel which turns out to be a woman's head and we also keep seeing a strange guy wearing a weird green mask, which is also meant to scare her.
As well as the hypnotist and mad scientist, we have a dwarf who is the hypnotist's mute assistant, hidden doorways and secret rooms. Just what you want in this sort of movie.
Bela plays the hypnotist and George Zucco (The Flying Serpent, House of Frankenstein) is the mad doctor. I've never heard of anyone else in the cast.
Scared To Death is a must for all Bela Lugosi fans. Great fun.
Rating: 3 stars out of 5.
