In this movie Dr. Hitchcock develops a particularly effective anesthetic. Of course, it he wanted to put people to sleep he could have just shown them this movie! Woo-Hoo! Take that, "The Horrible Dr. Hitchcock"!
Seriously, though, I never thought a movie starring Barbara Steele about necrophilia and people being buried alive would be so boring. Dr. Hitchcock resembles a wormy James Caan and makes goofy faces whenever aroused- that is, when he's not being played by an obvious stunt double. Barbara sports some painful looking fake eye-lashes and has a sort-of romantic relationship with a guy even blander than Dr. H. About halfway through this flick you can leave, make yourself a salad, read a book, do some light cleaning and come back and not miss anything. This makes "The Screaming Skull" look like "Psycho".
