An Amicus film from yet another screenplay written by the ubiquitous Robert Bloch, th
An entertaining murder tale scripted by Robert Bloch. Some reviewers compared it unfavorably with Hitchcock's adaptation of Bloch's novel Psycho but there is really little similarity except for one stabbing scene that resembles the shower scene from the more famous film. Others compared it more fairly to the Italain "giallo" crime films. By far a better comparison is to the series of German B movies based on the novels of Edgar Wallace and his son Bryan Edgar Wallace. It has a similar style and pacing to those films but a rather more coherent story than most of them had.
