Murders in the Rue Morgue (1932)

Murders in the Rue Morgue is a 1932 film adaptation of the Poe story. The story can be read online. This film is directed by Robert Florey and stars Bela Lugosi.

Moria calls it "one of the formative films in the great 1930s Golden Age of mad scientist films." 1000 Misspent Hours doesn't like it at all. The New York Times is negative, saying "The entire production suffers from an overzealous effort at terrorization, and the cast, inspired by the general hysteria, succumbs to the temptation to overact"

10/7/2009: is hosting some Halloween movies this month and has this film featured today.
