Storyline

Story takes place over a span of years and a lot happens before Jack Packard and 'Doc" Long show up, or is explained after they make their entrance: A girl marries against the wishes of her parents, the parents argue about it, the father is killed, the girl loses her mind, and the mother goes away and pretends to be dead. Years later, the daughter of the insane woman (she had gotten married, and pregnant)returns to the old family homestead, and is not welcomed with open arms, as this family has several closets containing skeletons...from around the world.

"It's creepier in here than it was outside."
3 February 2014 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

The third and final entry in the I Love a Mystery series with Jack Packard (Jim Bannon) and Doc Long (Barton Yarborough). The story this time centers on a mystery at a spooky Southern mansion. Melodramatic acting from some but nobody stinks up the joint. Karen Morley stands out. Bannon is his typically bland but inoffensive self. Perhaps it's the Southern setting but Yarborough is even more Huckleberry Hound than usual ("Hey son, look a-yonder!"). Good time-killer. Better than the second film in the series, but not as good as the first. Overall, this series provided three B mystery films that were pretty good. Not without flaws, particularly with the lackluster detectives themselves. But the stories were interesting and enjoyable with lots of moody atmosphere.
