Time Out says

One of Hope's finest comedies, a sequel from Paramount to the success of the previous year's The Cat and the Canary, this sees him accompanying the gorgeous Ms Goddard to the West Indies, where she has inherited a haunted Gothic castle. Meetings with ghosts, zombies, and all manner of spooky phenomena occur, allowing Hope ample space to demonstrate his customary capacity for cowardice and alarm. But although the general situation is much the same as in The Cat and the Canary, it works better here because the film provides thrills as well as laughs, thanks to Marshall's deft and delicate direction, Charles Lang's shadowy camerawork, and Hans Dreier's authentically Gothic art direction.
