Critics reviews

Chaney’s uncanny grin and glacial drift through secret panels that close terribly slowly is great fun, but he’s not around enough to make up for the unfunny, unappealing lead characters. But history has been unkind to dismiss the movie out of hand: if your interest is aroused by The Bat Whispers’ sepulchral Magnascope compositions, The Monster will not wholly dissipate your interest in West.
