Trivia

Universal Pictures was one of the few major studios that did not own a theater chain. Consequently, it had a long history of interesting marketing tactics (see Carl Laemmle) to sell it's films to independent theaters. In the B-picture horror genre, it would often release films as part of a double bill. This film was originally released in the spring of 1946 with She-Wolf of London (1946). See more »

Neat Little "B" Programmer
21 August 2006 | by (Beltsville, Maryland) – See all my reviews

I am a fan of the old Universal, Columbia, Monogram, PRC, etc. supernatural, suspense, and mystery thrillers from the 1930s and 1940s. I was wondering when or if this little "B" ( or "C" ) mystery was going to be on VHS and so I found it via Sinister Cinema.

This little thriller is worth watching to see due to the fact that it is a murder mystery with supernatural overtones. I first saw this at the age of 12 (when I started to become a fan of this genre) and found some scenes hair-raising. I think this is due to some of the acting and the way some of the action occurs, especially when Mrs. Williams talks about the creeping cat. Overall, it is not a bad film to have in one's collection and I recommend for other fans of Universal mystery and suspense.
