Movie Info

This suspenseful, exciting mystery is based upon an Edgar Wallace story and centers upon the search for $1 million in buried loot. Only the original thief, Joe Valerie knows its location. He tells the crazed Austrian Dr. Cornelius about it. The good doc secretly schemes to get it for himself, but first he must evade a determined detective and the bogus psychic he has hired to help him out. The search leads the gumshoe to a spooky, seemingly haunted mansion. Three people die during the hunt and as they go, the mystic and the detective find themselves falling in love. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
