Grip of the Strangler (The Haunted Strangler) Reviews
THE HAUNTED STRANGLER/ THE GRIP OF A STRANGLER : This lesser known and underrated Boris Karloff starring horror-mystery film set in the late Victorian Era is one neat little film. The movie starts off in 1860 London where a sadistic strangler is hung, and then 20 years later in 1880 a Novelist (played by Karloff) researches into the case and discovers that an innocent man has been hung. The Novelist discovers the most likely culprit for the crime spree was the doctor that did the autopsies on both the victims and upon the strangler. When this new evidence comes to light again a new strangler appears and the killings start again. With a very good performance by Karloff and with moody Black & White cinematography THE GRIP OF A STRANGLER gets a solid 70% from me.
