Of the film's villain, Leonard Maltin concluded, "Slaughter plays it basically straight in this passable low-budget outing"; while Dennis Schwartz wrote, "Tod Slaughter is a trip as the perverse villain drooling over both stamps and Julie (Greta Gynt), and decked out when meeting gang members in a spiffy black robe with a snake embroided on its front and a fashionable KKK-like hood. Like Vincent Price, Slaughter can make a not too original low-budget B film fun to watch."
