Movie Info

In this film, Bud Abbott and Lou Costello encounter none other than a scheming Boris Karloff who appears as the (in)credible mystic bent upon framing poor Costello as the perpetrator of a series of hotel murders. Lou's pal Bud, who plays the hotel detective, isn't much help either.

Audience Reviews for Abbott and Costello Meet the Killer, Boris Karloff

  • Sep 23, 2011
    In this film Bud and Lou are working in a hotel where people are being murdered and Lou looks like the killer. Boris Karloff make short appearances to help sell the film I'm sure. Just not as funny as some of there other movies, missing that comedy found in the wolf man and Frankenstein Films. Still give it 3 1/2 stars

    Another fun Abbott and Costello movie, this time they are suspected of murder, or is it the killer, Boris Karloff?

    Very funny film, a little disappointing after seeing A & C meet Frankenstein, but still excellent.
    Christopher B Super Reviewer

    Not their best film, but I live for the scene wherein Boris Karloff hypnotizes Lou and tries to make him commit suicide. That's comedy!
