To an excellent volume, the hassle is winning. Berber's personality, for instance, works higher this time around, considering the fact that he is given no discussion to talk of, and whereas it can be a cliché, making him a sympathetic monster is unusually extra enjoyable. furthermore, the script shrewdly permits him to engage with the leads, retaining him much less at the edge of the court cases. If not anything else, this ends up in a perfectly strange second the place he assaults Eddi Arent (here taking part in a secondary cop with the identify of Holmes! ) and intensely matter-offactly attempts to bury him alive. the main exciting point of The Door with Seven Locks, even though, is sort of definitely the addition of Pinkas Braun's Dr. Staletti, the aforementioned mad scientist. This brings the sequence a section in the direction of whatever like conventional horror. Staletti - who seems to be extra mad charlatan than mad scientist - is given an exceptional mystery laboratory (some of the props are recycled from lifeless Eyes of London's mystery drowning room), splendidly inconceivable discussion (at least within the dubbed model) and the main lovably hokey man-in-a-gorilla-suit ever to grace the monitor. what's specifically attention-grabbing approximately all this, notwithstanding, is the character of Staletti's proposed scan. even if unintentionally or layout, the assumption of grafting a human head onto a gorilla used to be the dream of the daddy of the yank horror movie, Tod Browning, even though Browning's suggestion used to be just a little kinkier in that he was once in particular drawn to grafting a horror cinema around the globe woman's head onto the animal. still, it is of a few observe that this concept - one who Browning by no means controlled to carry to fruition - may still the following see the sunshine of day. even if it is not winning as horror, the movie is a lot enjoyable that nobody is probably going to bitch; the place lifeless Eyes of London were usually chilling, The Door with Seven Locks is simply too fanciful to not be fun. And in lots of methods, that's the tale of the krimis to return. useless Eyes of London could be the closest the sequence ever got here to creating a horror movie within the vintage feel, yet taken as a physique, the movies have a spot within the heritage of horror that hasn't ever been properly explored. The growing to be good fortune of the sequence on a in basic terms well known point led Rialto's rival studio, CCC (Central Cinema corporation) to aim their hand at a blatantly imitative sequence. although, CCC had realized a lesson from self sufficient manufacturer Kurt Ulrich's above: Poster for Alfred Vohrer's Die Tur Mit Den 7 Schlössern (aka The Door with Seven Locks), 1962. 121 Germany above: Edwin Zbonek's Das Ungeheuer Von London urban (aka The Monster of London City), 1964. contrary best: Franz Josef Gottleib's Das Phantom Von Soho (aka homicide through Proxy), 1963. contrary backside: Franz Josef Gottleib's Der Fluch Der Gelben Schlange (aka The Curse of the Yellow Snake), 1963 122 run-in with Rialto, and, after risking one bona fide Wallace model, Der Fluch Der Gelben Schlange (The Curse of the Yellow Snake, 1963, dir.
