Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Amateurish and crude, William Castle's film is better known for its aggressive publicity campaign."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"A dull and crudely made haunted house tale."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Dry and dusty; the good bits are doled out slowly and sparingly."
‑ Scott Weinberg, eFilmCritic.com
"Cheesy -- and gory -- classic; no young'uns."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"Too bad the ghost goggles didn't blind you from this horrid film."
‑ Alex Sandell, Juicy Cerebellum
"The special effects were low-budget even for their time, but there are a couple of jump-out-at-you moments and plot twists that still work pretty well."

"It falters just as most of today's movies falter: too much emphasis on effects and not enough on characters."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Quaint, creaky, and probably worse than the remake"
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
