"[T]hey are mainly interesting as a transitional step in the shift from the supernatural horror that dominated the 1930's to the psychological terror that took over after World War II."
Fantastic Movie Musings and Ramblings 7 of 10
[Calling] This was one of the Inner Sanctum Mysteries Universal produced during the forties. They all starred Lon Chaney Jr., and involved mysterious murders, usually with Chaney believing he was responsible, but events proving otherwise...This one is so-so, with some nice point-of-view shots at times and adaquate performances by all, but even at a running time of sixty minutes, I don't feel they had quite enough of a story to support the whole movie; there are just too many scenes of Naish coming in and telling Chaney he should confess. For all that, it's an okay time-killer.
