The famous sequence in which Princess Ananka (Virginia Christine) rises from the dead in the swamp is slightly undercranked - a process that speeds up the action - which gives an eerie, unreal quality to her movements. The trick is given away by the overly fast movements of the branches around her. See more »
When Kharis attacks Tante Berthe in her room, she gasps as he strangles her. The camera pans to the resurrected Ananka, who stands nearby. Tante Berthe's previous gasps are replayed as Ananka watches the struggle. See more »
Having a tanna leaf brew with Kharis for the last time.
By this time the Kharis series was out of ideas. In the last movie Kharis & his princess submerged into a new england swamp. As usual with the Universal programmers that was ignored and we are shifted to Louisiana.Once again Kharis wants to be reunited with his loved one.AGAIN!
The acting is decent while Kosleck gives a very slimy performance as a perverted Kharis follower.Chaney isn't given much except to stumble around and do some one armed strangling.The sets are nicely done as well. The scene where the princess breaks out of the ground is excellent.
The characters are cardboard and there is some offensive racial stereotyping typical of the 40's.What I want to know is why don't folks run from Kharis? He moves like a tortoise. Dance around the walking ragpile, grab a torch and roast marshmellows with him.He's thousands of years old! He'll go up in a heartbeat.
This movie doesn't require or deserve a lot of thought.It clocks in at 59 minutes so if you have an hour to kill it won't hurt you.Average.
