Poster of Chamber of Horrors

...this movie is really a lost treasure because of its unusual genesis [as a television pilot] and also because it just doesn’t fall into any of the normal classifications of the Gothic horror film of the 1960s.

Dr. Steve Haberman, Chamber of Horrors audio commentary (Scream Factory, 2021)

...a fairly intriguing, moderately charming, but ultimately overlong and unsatisfying tale...

Mark Clark, Bryan Senn, Sixties Shockers: A Critical Filmography of Horror Cinema, 1960-1969 (McFarland, 2011)

Some arrestingly lurid moments...are undermined by the TV format and the silly gimmicks.

Phil Hardy, The Overlook Film Encyclopedia: Horror (The Overlook Press, 1994)
