Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A breathtakingly self-reflexive portrait"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"Interessante versão da história de Barba-Azul, desta vez com um Carradine atipicamente contido e, conseqüentemente, muito eficaz."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"Ulmer's third masterpiece, after The Black Cat (1934) and Detour (1945); it's one of his few films that overcame its wretched budget."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Dream-like film mixing opera, crime and puppets in 19th Century Paris."
‑ Michael E. Grost, Classic Film and Television
"It's prolific actor John Carradine's first starring role in a horror film and his own favorite performance."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Really good Ulmer film marred by an atrocious musical score"
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
