This is a fairly rare film starring Christopher Lee, Mel Ferrer and Dany Carrel. Three fine actors in the movie that actually make the film worth watching. Christopher Lee is good as usual in this film... he plays a really wicked blackmailer - watch this film just for his performance if nothing else.
The story is an interesting one: a pianist looses his hands in a accident and surgically gets new hands but he did no know that the hands originally belonged to a murderer.
So we have good actors and a good story. What's wrong with the film is the cinematography.... it's really flat, one-dimensional - amateurish yet watchable. As others have mentioned, there is the lack of some creepy or suspenseful music - if the film had that it would have added a new layer of underlying horror if it was present in the movie.
Over all, I enjoyed this film.... it's just a lack of better cinematography and eerie music that is all that is missing - otherwise a decent story and good acting.
