Bela and Monogram work just fine together!Reviewed bybinapiraeusVote: 6/10

There's a very strange and frightening murder series going on: young brides all of a sudden faint and die during their wedding ceremony - the nightmare of every young couple and their parents... But not enough with that: the bodies of the brides are stolen practically right from the altar! But a cheeky girl reporter finally finds a clue: an orchid with a strange smell, and she soon finds out that every one of the brides wore an orchid like this.

And so, determined to get out of her gossip column job at last and into the REAL (yellow press) journalism, she finds out who grows these rare orchids, and ventures right into the lion's den - where she meets a perfect, but somehow reserved gentleman and his beautiful, but obviously psychologically disturbed wife. But what she doesn't know yet: this gentleman is the same man who peeps grinning out of the hearse every time it takes away the bodies of the dead brides...

Here Bela Lugosi REALLY seems to be in his element: the stately, well-mannered, but somehow sinister gentleman who turns out to be something COMPLETELY different at the end - but not a blood-thirsty monster as we may suspect, but a caring, obeying husband; only not in the USUAL way...

This is one of the 'serious' movies that Bela made for Monogram - and he DID take it serious. His performance is excellent, and even if the script at a close look does show some flaws, the direction is perfect: the classic, haunting atmosphere of doom seems to hang above everyone's head - but will fate spare anybody? Find out for yourself - it's REALLY worth watching, a 'must' for every fan of classic horror!

I had watched THE CORPSE VANISHES (1942) a couple of years ago but I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised as to how watchable and engaging it was the second time around. Who'd have thought that such fare was worth a second look? If anything, I found CORPSE to be even livelier than GHOST (which did get to be repetitious and feel constrained by its one setting): although it is never explained why Lugosi is married to an 80-year old woman (except maybe to get into high society given that she's a "Countess") or why she needs to be youthful (it's not like she's parading her "look" anywhere except at the Lorenz household), the film offers an amusing throwback to those 30s hard-boiled reporter movies and predates such rejuvenation-themed horror movies as I VAMPIRI (1956).

I found the film to be quite atmospheric and enjoyable: it was nice to watch Lugosi surrounded by such familiar faces as Elizabeth Russell (from several Val Lewton films), Angelo Rossitto (one of Tod Browning's FREAKS [1932]) and Vince Barnett (who had a memorable supporting role in Hawks' SCARFACE [1932]) among others. That said, the campier elements of the film were sometimes too silly for words: Lugosi whipping his moronic assistant, the proverbial funereal organ-playing, the even more hilarious sight of Lugosi and Russell sleeping in coffins and the final shoot-out with the police in which, of all people, it's Lugosi's dwarfish henchman who gets it!

In the end, I guess I wouldn't mind watching Lugosi's other stuff from this period but I doubt if it will make me enough of a fan to go out and purchase them in their best available prints on DVD.

Wallace Fox' "The Corpse Vanishes" of 1942 starring his greatness Bela Lugosi, is certainly not one of the highlights of Lugosi's career, but it is certainly underrated and its reputation of being total garbage is, in my opinion, unfair. The plot is chaotic and the movie is certainly not very good and completely illogical in many parts, but is has a certain atmosphere and its creepy moments, as well as some very funny ones.

After several brides drop dead during their marriage ceremonies and their bodies are stolen, the police are unable to find any clues. When a female journalist (Luana Walters) decides to do some research, her investigations lead her to the sinister Dr. Lorenz (Lugosi) , who lives in an eerie mansion with his sardonic wife and a bunch of freaks...

It seems to me that director Fox actually didn't do a bad job bringing a completely messy script to screen. The movie's beginning is, admittedly annoying, and so fast-paced that hardly a scene lasts longer than half a minute. The movie improves after some time, however, and even though some parts are still incredibly cheesy (and therefore unintentionally funny), "The Corpse Vanishes" becomes quite atmospheric after some time. The atmosphere is aided by a pretty nice score (mostly violin music, which fits in very well), and I really liked some of the characters.

Bela Lugosi is, of course, always a pleasure to watch, this man knew how to bring eeriness to screen in a very special and unique way and his status as one of Horror's greatest icons is more than justified. Elisabeth Russel does a great job playing Lugosi's creepy wife, a malevolent and sardonic countess, whose spiteful character becomes great fun to watch at times. Luana Walters also fits well into her role and the cast furthermore contains Angelo Rositto (the midget from Tod Browning's masterpiece "Freaks" of 1932).

All things considered, "The Corpse Vanishes" is a movie that is certainly illogical and incredibly cheesy at times, but it has a certain atmosphere, and Bela Lugosi, as well as some of the other cast members make a good effort making up for the messy script. Certainly not a must-see, but amusing and recommended to Lugosi fans. 5/10
