Later on the tour of the plantation as Mr. Sydney passes by Cleeve the pipe is gone but in the next shot just seconds after Mr. Sydney has walked a few steps away, the pipe is again clearly visible.

It's Gothic triller horror rather than film noir. The horror is not supernatural, it's psychological torture. Swamp setting! The main chick Merle Oberton is obviously of some indoasiancaucasian descent and is really repulsive and antipathetic, and is pretty much the only problem of this movie, besides the mystery being resolved too soon. What I loved the best was the character actor Elisha Cook (The Killing, Maltese Faclon, Salem's Lot). Brilliant guy. The atmosphere is unnerving and unsettling, pretty scary somewhat. The usage of the house interior is sometimes pretty good while the usage of swamp exterior could've been better. A how should this movie not be good when it's directed by the guy wearing an eye patch?
