Film Review: Horrors of the Black Museum, 1959.

Unlike the Scotland Yard's actual Black Museum this foray into a slight retelling of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is better left unwatched. Michael Gough is truly contemptible but his performance cannot rise above the camp of what was intended to be a serious film.

Originally released in "Hypnovision", this is the tale of a famous crime writer who creates his own crime, i.e. murders through the hypnotism and the injection of a formula into his hapless assistant.

The supporting acting is one dimensional and amateurish. In short someone should have hid every pen, pencil and typewriter in a two mile radius when Herman Cohen and Aben Kandel decided to write this.
