Professional Reviews

The SF, Horror and Fantasy Film Review 8 of 10
[Corridors] Corridors of Blood is one of the early films from the English horror cycle. The film was originally made in 1958 under the title The Doctor of Seven Dials but was not actually released until 1962. At the time that it was made co-star Christopher Lee, who played the supporting part of the murderous Resurrection Joe, was a young, not particularly well known actor and had just appeared in Hammer's The Curse of Frankenstein (1957)...Director Robert Day does a fair job and the story is reasonably absorbing. Karloff plays well, doing the sort of mad scientist role he perfected - a scientist whose endeavours seem highly sympathetic and not at all mad, really. Christopher Lee adds quite a sinister undercurrent as the murderous blackguard, while Francis De Wolff shines as the burly blackmailing innkeeper. - Richard Scheib

DVD Cult 7 of 10
[Atomic] A flawed 1959 sci-fi film that may be of interest to fans of It Conquered the World or Journey to the Seventh Planet. But this is no The Day the Earth Stood Still. The film has a lot to offer in the area of bad miniature effects, military melodrama, and 1950's sci-fi goobledygook. The plot itself is not too bad, and might even be interesting had it come out today and made use of big budget digital FX. The movie does feature some of those 1950's charms that MST 3000 fans like to make fun of...The effects for this film are quite primitive and are not even the caliber of a classic Godzilla film. Though the underwater submarine battles obviously resemble pencils floating in a fish tank, the aliens themselves are rather convincing (for a fifties flick) and memorable. - Steve Harris
