Critical reception

Britmovie noted a "typical multi-suspect “quota quickie”";[3] and Classic Horror online wrote, "we nominate SHOT IN THE DARK as the worst film ever made! But this is not to detract anything from its entertainment value. Films such as these were produced on both a limited budget and a limited time scale. Taking this into consideration, these films are little marvels for what they could achieve, and earn themselves a position in the annals of film history. Many famous actors made their first film appearances in these pictures, but now that many of them are lost to us forever, the recognition of the remaining few becomes a necessity."[4]
