In this horror crime comedy, a fiendish serial killer threatens the usual assortment of characters in the standard mansion. Frank McHugh and Allen Jenkins, Warner Brothers character actors who are wasted here, dominate the action as the Dumb and Dumber detectives on the case. One viewer’s comedy relief is another’s cause for eye-rolling sighs. I was amused by the satire of crook idioms:
I'm wise this guy blatts out for stoolin'. So I'm crowdin' him wit' the heater but he don't belch. I know he's an alky stiff so I start feedin' him the dynamite when Clancy walks in wit' this guy's twist. She's all full o' happy dust and leapin'. He calls for a blizzard so we let 'er have it, figgerin' on the beef, see?
Not so funny – in my book, anyway, which is as idiosyncratic about humor as anybody else’s - are too many lines such as when the coroner asks, “What is the condition of the corpse,” the answer is, “Dead.” It reminds me too much of cute teenagers answering, “Could you pass the salt,” with “Yes,” and then just sitting there.
The creative opening sequence is a gimmicky murder and the reveal during the climax are both well done. However, in between, the action moves slowly and the other couple of murders, especially one committed on a airplane, don’t make a lot of sense, even for a B-movie. On the positive side, the sets are nice as is the wardrobe. Chester Morris is game in a lamely written part and Vivienne Osbourne is attractive though she is not given much to do.

"I love Chester Morris. This is a great mystery movie with lots of twists. Some may remember Chester Morris in all of the Boston Blackie movies. Chester Morris is in a more serious role in this movie rather than a light hearted comedic part as in the Boston Blackie movies."
A good mystery film from Alpha Video

"This has enough intrigue and suspense for a nice quiet evening when you are in the mood for a low budget who done it. I found this movie to be paced really well & when you are in the mood to watch this sort of movie this wont disappoint. Curl up in bed , relax and enjoy. The DVD transfer from Alpha is average to okay, basically the usual, they just get it on DVD and no remastering. I do wish some other company would put out some better quality print. Tomorrow at Seven stars Chester Morris(from The Bat Whispers,Alibi, The She Creature as well as Boston Blackie) who is tracking the Black Ace, who leaves an Ace of Spades after he kills people. Pretty good who-done-it for its kind. Other good Alpha mysteries to check out Murder at Dawn, Midnight Warning, & House of Secrets"
