Night Monster

I love finding those classic gems that I 've never seen before and this is definitely one of those. This is a fun little whodunit horror film from 1942 with Bela Lugosi and Lionel Atwell. Kurt Ingston a rich cripple invites the doctors who left him this way to his mansion. He tells the doctors there is no hard feelings towards them for his condition but they soon start being killed off one by one.With a mansion full of suspicious suspects no one can seem to figure out who the killer is. This movie has a great creepy atmosphere with the use of fog instead of the usual thunderstorms in classic horror films. The silence of the crickets and frogs before the kills that happen out doors was also effective. It keeps you thinking through out the 73 minutes of the film and the acting from all of the cast was great. This is definitely a must see for any fan of classic horror and mystery films.
