decent film, misleading title
29 October 2003 | by (Long Island, NY) – See all my reviews

This breezy, hour-long 1942 movie sports a wildly misleading title. It's not a thriller or horror movie at all, but rather a spy film. It features Warner Bros. staple John Loder in a convincing performance as a shell shocked Army captain who gets sucked into some intrigue involving Nazis. Provocative and taut for a B picture; catch it on Turner Classic when you can.
