Product Description

Film icon Peter Lorre turns in yet another memorable performance in this eerie classic set in a small town in Italy. Hilary Cummins (Lorre), the devoted secretary to wheelchair-bound piano virtuoso Francis Ingram (Victor Francen), has a passion for the occult. Poring through every book on the supernatural he can find in Ingram's vast library, Hilary begins to imagine strange and terrifying things. But after Ingram's tragic death, the line between reality and unimaginable terror is blurred as the severed hand from Ingram's corpse begins killing everyone in the villa! Also starring Robert Alda and Andrea King, The Beast with Five Fingers is filled with wit, thrills and shocking plot twists!

Finally on DVD Oct. 16 2013
By William Amazzini - Published on
Format: DVD
Director Robert Florey's 'THE BEAST WITH FIVE FINGERS'-1946 finally gets a DVD release from Warner Archive's DVD-R collection. Shown sporadically on Turner Classic Movies, it finally allows access to one of actor Peter Lorre's best roles as secretary to a famed concert pianist played sinisterly by venerable Victor Francen who at his death leaves everything to his pretty niece played by Andrea King causing Lorre to have murder on the mind and suddenly seeing the pianist's hand turning up at the most inopportune times. Actor Robert Alda plays the (is he or isn't he?) good guy and the great character actor J. Carrol Naish plays the inspector slinking around the mansion spewing wise cracks. The film emerges as an eerie excursion of guilt ridden terror and is let down by a humorous ending. The cinematography by Wesley Anderson enhances the proceedings showing how Director Florey should have had a better reputation in the Horror field. He and Lorre also collaborated in the underrated masterpiece 'THE FACE BEHIND THE MASK'-1941 which as yet has not seen a digital release. Warner Archive releases 'BEAST' in a nice transfer showing off the atmosphere of the proceedings but no extras. Although the price is a bit steep, it deserves to be in every classic Horror fans collection.

Classic from the old SciFi Mystery Theater days. Nov. 23 2013
By J. Dunlap - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
It's funny how this purchase came about. I was talking to a co worker about this movie not being available and within days Warner Brothers released it, however, it was more expensive than Amazon's price. This copy is very clean with perfect audio.

Finally on dvd! Nov. 30 2013
By John - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Lovely sharp print of this long-impossible-to-find minor gem. Like quite a few films of this period it's weakened (at the start) by rather too much light comedy, & so isn't a classic in the way say the Val Lewton b-movies are. However, Peter Lorre's performance is great, and the last half-hour (of an hour & 25 minutes) is really atmospheric, & the creeping hand effects are (in the main) really very good indeed. No extras to speak of - just the original trailer (how lumpy trailers used to be!) which has an enjoyably histrionic tone.

Old eerie classic holds up. Nov. 10 2013
By D. LENGYEL - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I saw this movie on TV I was maybe 8-9 yrs old. This was scary good fun at that age. Saw they finally released on DVD and purchased right away. Still a very atmospheric film and eerie. A movie does not have to be bloody to be good. Peter Lorrie is great in the role as the personal secretary/assistant. As usual you never know what he's up to. I feel its a classic of it's time and very pleased with my purchase.

Finally on DVD for this classic masterpiece! Nov. 7 2013
By Daniel J. Filice - Published on
Format: DVD
Hooray, finally on DVD! I agree with another reviewer who stated "A superb and atmospheric early horror film with fine acting, super effects, tight script and haunting soundtrack". Our younger movie viewers who are accustomed to high levels of gore and large-scale CGI in current movies may find "Beast" old fashioned and maybe a bit silly (and it's in B&W), but this movie shows what great writing and acting can do for a "B" type movie. If anyone is familiar with the great classic Warner Brother's Bugs Bunny cartoons, you may remember a recurring character of a psychopathic mad doctor that was based on Peter Lorre. Most of this character was based on Lorre's character in Beast With Five Fingers. This is a classic and wonderfully eerie movie that any fan of bygone suspense or horror movies should have in their collection. By the way, for some reason Warner Brother's burns this movie onto a DVD-R disc seemingly on an as-ordered basis. My DVD looks stunning and plays without issues. My previous DVD was one that I burned from VHS that I recorded from Turner Classic Movies channel which was horrible quality. On the Warner Brother's home website it states that "Beast" has been remastered, and it certainly looks like it. Good job!
