Jeffrey L. Price of the Trentonian says: "Boris Karloff and Peter Lorre would be proud of the performances by Tom Orr as the homicidal Jonathan and Mark Murphy as the sniveling Dr. Einstein. Orr’s tall, stocky stature, booming voice, gestures, scarred face and bushy eyebrows revealed who he was before it was explained that Dr. Einstein had performed surgery on Jonathan and made him look like the famous 1930s-40s horror movie actor."
