Chamber of Horrors (1940)

May 18, 2011

Based on the Edgar Wallace novel “The Door With Seven Locks” the Monogram film featured a very young Lilli Palmer and Leslie Banks who I was first introduced to in The Most Dangerous Game. There is a door with seven locks, a missing heir, and a torture chamber in this neat little thriller which has its share of surprises at the end. The problem with the film is the quality. The picture is barely passable but the sound is unacceptable. There were parts where I couldn’t hear the dialogue because of the faint audio and the excessive noise. If it is ever improved it is well worth a watch but the way it is now its not worth it. (forget it).
