While on a South Seas trip, a professor falls in love and marries an exotic native woman. What he doesn't know is that she was raised by superstitious natives who believe her to be some kind of supernatural being. Written by
After 40-odd years of watching horror films,I finally caught up with this one. My expectations were not high and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I found the opening satisfyingly creepy as the movie is liberally larded with all the necessary elements of the genre e.g. howling wind, "haunted house" organ music, Lon Chaney's thoughts vouchsafed to us in the form of voice-overs etc etc. I thought the tension was maintained throughout the film, with the exception of the jungle scenes which are dopey.The ending is fantastic but appropriate. The companion feature on the video, "The Frozen Ghost", I thought was dull.
