    In a contemporary review, Film Weekly called the film "a vintage thriller, put over in the right, rich spirit of years ago"; while more recently Britmovie praised "a sinister Tod Slaughter hamming it up marvellously." and the Radio Times wrote, "As with any film featuring the outrageously operatic antics of early horror star Tod Slaughter, this slow, stagebound murder-mystery would be completely unwatchable without the producer-star's presence."
