Trivia

The first film of the Edgar Wallace Series to be shot in an aspect ratio of 2,35:1. In order to be able to include some insert shots of London, new material had to be shot on location in UltraScope. In all the previous films of the series, archive footage from "Der Frosch mit der Maske" and "Das Geheimnis der gelben Narzissen". See more »

slithering Kinski!
8 August 2003 | by (Montreal) – See all my reviews

Another enjoyable Edgar Wallace krimi. Definitely one of the creepiest, with young Klaus Kinski slithering around in a wild animal emporium and french-kissing tropical snakes. It's all set in a dank, slushy London winter, where an arch-criminal called The Snake is avenging himself using blow-dart-propelled venom. There's also a bibulous old lady who loves lurid murder mysteries, the indispensable Eddie Arent as an eager reporter who plays invisible ping-pong, a cigarette-smoking stuffed deer, and a couple of those signature point-of-view trick shots from director Vohrer. The pace is a bit stodgy and the Squeaker doesn't seem to be involved much at all -- it sure doesn't resemble the older British version. The Sinister Cinema tape for once features the original intro with the author's name violently spelled out in bullet holes.
