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 »

The devil (Lon Chaney) is the host of a three-part film wherein we get some short tales of evil... people who will soon be joining the devil and his assistant Satanya in heck. The tales include a frozen woman, a murderous photographer, a fortune teller and some other stuff.
Why am i being vague? Because, frankly, this film was a pile of rubbish. It isn't even a real film but a compilation of three episodes of some older Swedish show. I mean, it's not bad, the stories are decent... but they're over a decade old. So yeah, you take a decade old television show and try to pass it off as a motion picture... you're going to fail.
The jacket that came with the movie also lied to me, saying the plot revolved around a plan to pass around the instructions of a nuclear weapon. That is not even in the film until the end and we never see where it goes... so that's such a misleading thing. I kind of wanted to know, but I guess I won't. And Lon Chaney... I mean, he's awesome, but this doesn't really showcase his skills at all... please, if you haven't, see "Spider Baby".
