This low-budget cheapy is from the days when Bela was pretty hard up for roles, but it has a certain charm. The basic plot is that Lugosi is a mad scientist with an aging wife whose beauty he is determined to preserve forever. Apparently, the way to do this is by extracting some chemical from young women that makes them beautiful. The height of discretion, Bela decides to kidnap brides at the altar – because it's easy to find them, I guess, when they are the center of attention and surrounded by people. His clever plan is challenged by a young go-getting female reporter who seems just as interested in using her job to secure a doctor for a husband as in solving the case, her comedy-relief photographer buddy, and the inevitable bland love interest. Luckily, Lugosi has a dysfunctional degenerate white trash family to help him out, and he hires street people to distract the police. Great movie making ,this is not, but it is good for some fun.

Lugosi not at his best, but still goodReviewed byVornoff-3Vote: 5/10
Every evening when I am tired I watch some old black and white horror movies, especially with master Lugosi. Corpse vanishes is film I have just seen. And I really enjoyed it! This movie definitely isn't the best Lugosi's movie, but if your are looking for some old simple film with great atmosphere of 1940 movie, you should watch it!
Bela Lugosi plays a mad scientist named "Dr. George Lorenz" who kidnaps young brides in order to transfer their life essences to his evil wife "Countess Lorenz" (Elizabeth Russell) which keep her youthful. But his operation becomes scrutinized when a pretty newspaper reporter named "Patricia Hunter" (Luana Walters) starts snooping around. Anyway, what I enjoyed about this film was that it was a likable little movie which never got too dark or too serious. And even though Bela Lugosi put on an excellent performance I thought Luana Walters actually stole the show and made it such fun to watch. Now, fans of horror might not think this is scary at all. It certainly isn't by today's standards. But this was made in a time when movies in general were a bit more subdued than they are now. Even so, there is no reason it still can't be enjoyed for what it simply is-a nice little film.
