Corpse Vanishes (1942)

They go well together, don’t they?

Monogram does better this time by having an interesting story and spending some decent money on certain scenes such as the weddings and one random scene in a club. 1942 seemed to be when everybody was using their top game including the smaller, cheaper studios. Bela Lugosi does well with a decent story to work with and plays a truly diabolical character who is responsible for the deaths of just as many henchmen as he seems to be the deaths of brides at the altar. We won’t focus too much on the potential issues involved in getting women who are supposed to be clean for his medical procedures to keep his wife young, focusing on women right before they are going to be married. There is a large amount of campy gothic atmosphere, particularly during some of the scenes at a rustic looking house.
