It has been a very long time since I saw this film, but it still has the same impact on me.

This is a very bizarre film about a criminal known as "The Octopus" who is trying to steal a secret device from an inventor. Two detectives, Kelly and Dempsey (Hugh Herbert and Allen Jenks) respectively, are stranded in a lighthouse with several people.

Little do they know that "The Octopus" is also there. Will the master criminal manage to steal the invention? Will the two bumbling detectives stop the theif?

Well I won't spoil it for anyone who hasn't seen this movie, but I can say this....even thou the film makes little sense, it's an enjoyable comedy/horror film with one of the best and most shocking transformation scenes I have ever seen in a film.

It runs only 54 minutes and moves like rushing water and if you're a 30's horror/mystery fan you'll enjoy this movie. I first talked about it on this blog in 2015, I believe, or maybe it was longer, but I have never forgotten it.

The print from Warner Archive is excellent and should please every movie fan. One of the best.
