ReviewSource At-A-Glance Film Reviews
Review [Tower] Price turns in one of his better performances in his supporting role, actually, and his "duel" with Rathbone is one of the highlights of the film. Karloff is a creepy (surprise) presence and creates another sinister character with his hulking proportions and arrow-like eyes. But Rathbone's performance as the power-mad Richard Duke of Gloucester is, save for a few scenes, the dominant presence in the film. It's a dark tale about his corrupt seizure of power...By today's standards, the movie's impact is considerably less than it probably was. Some horror films from the golden years of movies are just as biting today as they were, but this is not one of them...The performances by its ample cast, however, make it worth watching.

ReviewSource Fantastic Movie Musings and Ramblings
Review [Night] 1937 was one of the lousiest years for horror movies, and so that's why we found Boris Karloff as a lovable and distinctly non-threatening grandfatherly type in what is a fairly standard crime melodrama with touches of science fiction...It's a decent enough little film, well acted by all (especially Karloff), but it was really too minor a film to effectively open up a whole new genre of film for Karloff. Fortunately, horror would be back in a couple of years, and he would find himself in much more demand. The movie also features Ward Bond as one of the gangsters.

Dave Sindelar, Fantastic Movie Musings and Ramblings [Black] ...a gothic revenge story, with minor touches of horror...
Doug Pratt, [Strange] Every hue is perfect and every detail is sharp.
Ziggy's Video Realm [Tower] is excellent for its budget and its day, and the cast members on their own merits are first rate...
