With this in mind, I thought Dr. Orlof was O.K. but nothing special. The story has been told and retold many times before since horror films began. It offers no surprises nor interesting twists. Everything just goes along like you expect it to. Yawn.
What it does have going for it is in terms of cinematography. The choice of black and white for this film was perfect. It's has great atmosphere and often interesting scene compositions. The other thing it has going for it is Ricardo Valle who plays Morpho. He creates a quirky, weird character that would have scared the crap out of me as a kid. He's definitely the most interesting thing on the screen and keeps the audience wondering who or what he is.
All in all, I just can't get too excited over The Awful Dr. Orlof. He just wasn't awful enough for me!
