Trying to stay awake watching this one
29 September 1999 | by (In the fog) – See all my reviews

This is another Edgar Wallace based krimi produced by the Germans in the early 1960's. While I am a fan of this series this movie is probably the worst of the lot that I have seen up to this point.This is even worse than The Indian Scarf(see my review of that one).This should have been titled "Curse Of The Boring Movie".

The plot deals with a fanatical cult of Chinese bent on world domination.They believe that a yellow snake charm has the "power" to give the possessor the ability to win any fight they start according to Chinese legend.Of course the intrepid white folks are shaking in their boots at the thought of world peace being threatened. But the cult looks like it only had about 100 members so there are some heavy logistics to work out on the ability to wreck world peace.

The usual stable of German actors are in this film. As usual the comic relief is played by Eddie Arent and you wish he would have gotten a dagger in the back.The comic touches in this series are heavy handed and irritating.The hero isn't really a guy you would like.In fact I didn't care about any of the characters.

There is a nice use of fog and dank atmosphere.But it doesn't help much. The source material may have been weak for this one. Either way, skip this cursed movie.
