Trivia

Was edited out of three distinctive episodes, some of which directed by Curt Siodmak, from Swedish TV series 13 Demon Street (1959), shot in English language but originally aired with Swedish subtitles. Lon Chaney was brought to Sweden to film a framing story for the sake of continuity. See more »

Photographer Don tells Charlie that "somebody" is coming out of the house in the photograph. When Charlie suggests that he's imagining it and they should look at the photograph, he says "If I can't see her, you'll believe me." See more »

Hardly Worth the Effort
23 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First of all, the use of a hell-like place is sort of fun. The problem is, it is handled so poorly and so dully by Lon Chaney, Jr. that is becomes pointless. More of a problem than that are a trio of pretty dull stories. They are highly predictable with weak endings. A decent writer could have been given these three premises and made them very scary. As it is, we start with the photographer who must be psychotic. He murders a young woman who doesn't want her picture taken. Then images keep reappearing. The second, and weakest, is about a deranged anthropologist who kills his rival so he can hook up with a woman, frozen in a chunk of ice. It doesn't get much more asinine than this. The most intriguing is about a man who is told by a fortune teller he will be killed by midnight "and by her." The setup is good. Things work their way out. But the ending is a real disappointment and fizzles. These are TV like and apparently were, originally. Chaney must have really fallen on hard times. He looks old and tired. But he does have a document for mankind at the end. They should have sent it back.
