REVIEWS

“CRITIC'S PICK! Not many sequels wind up improving upon the original, but this horror classic,
which adds a large dose of pathos and dry wit to the mixture, is a notable exception.”

– Time Out New York

“Among the greatest of horror films. Very funny and poignant.”
– David Thomson

“A macabre comedy classic. Whale had a good sense of gothic humor.” – Pauline Kael
