What a strange film.
1 March 2012 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This is a rather odd thriller.It has a rather unsatisfactory framing device so that it begins and ends in a club.Jimmy Hanley is an old reporter who is asked to recount his experiences as a young cub reporter.It starts with a fire at an asylum where one of the lunatics is thought to have escaped.However for some reason everyone seems to deny this.Hanleys friend lives with her mother in a large house and decide to let out a room.Along comes Valentine Dyall looking very sinister and dressed in black to take the room.For some reason he is allowed to take over the house.He talks in a menacing monotone.The lights are kept dim,the curtains drawn,his room locked and preventing other people from visiting.Eventually he is found dead in his room which is bolted from the inside.The denouement is very unsatisfactorily filmed,partly flashback and partly description.The film seems to use part of Edgar Wallace's "Clue Of The New Pin".It could have been a lot better.
