"Like a lot of washed up actors, Boris Karloff took just about anything that came his way late in his career, and this movie is one of the films which proves that. "Dance Of Death" is actually a Mexican production whose concept is infinitely more interesting than what appears on the screen.Karloff's character is going mad and he invites all of his remaining relatives to his mansion. For reasons I won't bother going into, he believes that one of them is commiting a string of murders. He decides that the only solution is to kill each of his relatives.That isn't anything original, but how the killings are supposedly taking place sounded intriguing. Karloff owns several toys which are rumored to be able to come to life and murder people. The execution of the idea unfortunately did not live up to the premise.The "toys" (except for one) were obviously just adult men wearing costumes. Wow...how exciting. The rest of the film was just as disappointing. Events unfolded at an excrutiatingly slow pace and the production values were quite poor.With all of the films which Karloff made, you can easily find much better ones to spend your money on."
