Very good film of a master criminal getting revenge from beyond the grave
Another one of the German Edgar Wallace series. This time a master criminal is caught as he attempts to rob a bank. A shoot out occurs and a police officer is shot. Sentenced to die all of those responsible are summoned to the man's cell where he threatens to do them all in. After he is gone corpses begin to turn up and it soon becomes clear, even though it shouldn't be possible, that the dead man is alive and well and taking his revenge. Good film in the series isn't always the clear plot-wise, but for what it fudges in plotting, it makes up in mood with great black and white photography that makes everything thing much more mysterious. Say what you will I really liked this a great deal. Worth a look if you come across it
