Oscar-winner Lionel Barrymore ("It's a Wonderful Life") stars in this classic horror thriller about a Devil's Island escapee who shrinks murderous slaves and sells them to his victims as dolls. Co-starring Maureen O'Sullivan ("Tarzan, the Ape Man") and Frank Lawton ("David Copperfield").

...more of a mystery yarn, a tall-tale if you will, than a horror movie, although it is big on mood and atmosphere.
Though it might not be the climax to Browning's distinctive career in the genre one might have wished, it's certainly a worthwhile film.
One of Browning's more bizarre and enjoyable entries.
