Time Out says

Engaging chiller based on an Edgar Wallace novel, with Lugosi giving one of his better performances as the director of an insurance company and (incognito) of a home for the blind where the newly-insured are drowned in a tank and disposed of in the Thames. Let down by extremely conventional characterisation of the intrepid hero and heroine (Williams and Gynt), but weirdly atmospheric, with good use made of the Thames mudflats and a splendidly macabre denouement involving two blind henchmen, one of them a hulking Frankenstein monster (Walter).
