Criminals get it in the neck
18 July 1999 | by (Cullman Alabama) – See all my reviews

This is an above average Edgar Wallace thriller.Some creepy opening scenes set the pace. A hooded society passes judgement on criminals"beyond the reach of the law".They are hung and dumped into the Thames river.A hangman's rope from Scotland Yard is repeatedly stolen and used in the executions.Is there a member of Scotland Yard in the society? An inspector tries to find out.A phoney society is set up by criminals and quickly brought to an end.In the meantime a serial killer is beheading young women and absconding with their heads.

The serial killer while tying into the society feels like it came out of another movie (a sci-fi flick).The killer is a scientist trying to attach living heads to a robot's body. This drags the film down from a being a superior film. All in all still a minor classic.
