Movie Reviews

Beware of Scary Dubbing!
John E. Nunez | Los Angeles | 10/21/2005
(2 out of 5 stars)

"This German horror flick tries its best to frighten in spite of the mediocre plot. Scariest of all is the flat English dubbing throughout this less than ideal film. Unless you can get an original language copy, skip this one altogether."
Sexy german film
Jack Barbera | farmingdale, NY | 11/04/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I first saw this film as a kid on late night TV. The overlying sexual tension was a real turn on. Plot was silly, but the continuing thread throughout the film was the stupid murders and the dirty old man scenarios. The College Dean's sexy secretary was both erotic and funny at the same time."
Evil Red Abbots
Nicholas David Cardwell | 05/10/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Here's the lowdown on the College Girl Murders. First,this is an entry in Rialto Film's Edgar Wallace series from 1967 originally titled Der Monch mit der Peitsche (English: The Monk With the Whip). Its based on the oft filmed Edgar Wallace play The Terror which has been filmed numerous times. It is better in the original German, but still gives a visual wallop in this wacked out dubbed version of questionable quality. This movie is NOT a horror film its a film thriller (in German a krimi).This has an evil mastermind with a vile plan who dresses like a sinister red monk with a pointy hood who breaks peoples necks with a whip and gasses private school girls with cyanide gas from a device hidden in a hymnal.....Where else but an Edgar Wallace krimi can you find something this utterly mindbogglingly pulp! So yeah check this out its the good stuff!"
In the spirit of the Bond films

(3 out of 5 stars)

"After a student at a girls' boarding school is found poisoned, an incompetent police inspector and his competent assistant and called in to solve the murder.

This 1967 murder mystery is a lot of fun. Although made in German, with German actors (it's dubbed into English), the film is set in England and clearly targeted at the English/International market. The film is very silly (I think it was intended to be light-hearted but it is also so-bad-it's-funny in parts) and has all of the elements of a James Bond movie (which had just started to become popular at around this time): a master criminal with a top secret lair, complete with a pit filled with crocodiles; a homicidal "monk" with a bull whip (actually a person in a red robe that looks like something a Klansman would wear); mad scientists, etc.

Apparently this movie is based on a novel by Edgar Wallace, but to my knowledge Edgar Wallace never wrote a novel with a plot even vaguely resembling this one (and between my father and myself, we have read most of Wallace's books). However, the story is still pretty interesting. It's not a great plot, I imagine that I will have forgotten the finer details by the end of the week, but it kept me entertained for the films duration. Being written in the 1960's, the film is as trashy as you would expect it to be (it contains the requisite beautiful young girls and lecherous middle-aged men that seem to be included in all films of this era), but looking back on it from the "enlightened" 21st century, that just adds to its charm.
