When Mike arrives at Nicole's apartment, she puts a record on the phonograph. Mike sits and looks through a magazine as the song plays. When he leaves the music has stopped and the phonograph is off with the arm on the rest. Nicole comes in a moment later and the turntable is still moving with the arm in the center of the record.

There's something that suggests world domination in Boris Karloff's first description of his technique to hypnotize young people but this is soon dispelled by a surprising performance in a rather average film. Interestinglyly pieced together, the director tries hard to portray the idea of control which only sometimes works, but nevertheless does get better as the film nears a climax. Predictable in plot but still violent enough to present a challenge to those expect a little more from their Karloff movies. Great just to see Karloff in an argument in a newsagents at the very beginning - not a usual scene from your run-of-the-mill fantasy thrillers!
