Movie Reviews

This is one fun mystery/horror movie
eurotrash-fan | PLANTATION, FL United States | 02/23/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Creature with the Blue Hand was one of my favorite late night films from my childhood, but this video has added footage that was filmed much later by someone other than the films original crew. This detracts from the original body of work as it looks out of place and out of sync with the rest of the film. The dialogue and acting, not to mention the fact that the actors used for this additional footage look like they belong in the 80's and not the 60's, are truely laughable. it can be ignored and one shouldn't let it interfer with the enjoyment of the original work. This film was adapted from an Edgar Wallace mystery novel about twin brothers, one of whom has been committed to the local mental institution for committing murder. However, did they put the right brother in the asylum? This is a movie full of atmosphere and plot twists (more than most games of twister even). It was directed by Alfred Vohrer, who during the 60's directed many films based on the stories of Edgar Wallace. This, however, is one of his better efforts. If you are familiar with his films from this period of his work, you will recognize a great deal of the cast as having been in a number of his other films. Even though there was additional footage added, this film still holds up and is a great work in the German Krimi genre."
Dead Creature With The Bloody Blue Hand...
Bindy Sue FrÝnkŁnschtein | under the rubble | 08/07/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Originally titled: THE BLUE HAND, this movie was brought to the states by Roger Corman and re-titled: CREATURE WITH THE BLUE HAND. Then, some genius' decided to shoot extra "gore" footage ten years after the movie was filmed, and rename it: THE BLOODY DEAD! These added scenes (a nurse being shredded by two mental patients) are pointless and silly. Thankfully, we get both THE BLOODY DEAD and the BLUE HAND as a double feature! The original has plenty of suspense, mystery, and fun without the unnecessary, tacked-on mess. We have Klaus Kinski in a dual role as twins, one a possible maniac! There's the title killer w/ his blue hand, complete w/ finger-knives! There's the insane asylum, the castle full of secret passages, and inhuman torture using both rats and snakes! Excuse me while I change my drool bucket! Yep, this one's a classic. Just ignore TBD and stick w/ the non-padded version..."
One of Kinski's better performances.

"This movie has been well reviewed here, but here are some additional points: 1) Klaus Kinski has some lengthy scenes early on in this film, and at the very end, which he handles very well. But Kinski's presence in this bizarre creation amounts to perhaps ten percent overall, and as always his voiced is dubbed. 2) The story may be based on an Edgar Wallace novel but the events portrayed in this movie never make any sense at any time. 3) Besides the extraneous footage mentioned, whenever the story threatens to become predictable or just plain stupid, the events portrayed always revert to the exceedingly bizarre. 4) I can't really say this is a "good" movie (even as a good bad movie) but the attempt to film a murder mystery with multiple twists to the plot becomes so tortured and incoherent that it is well worth seeing."
A Pretty Good Movie If You Like B Movies Like I Do!

"This is a pretty good movie. It lagged at a few points but overall it was great. It was full of blood and gore but was much higher quality then most movies of this genre.(not that that would make any difference to me) It also had a good story that was more involved then most B Movies. Its definitely worth checking out."
