Creepy movie played by the veteran Karloff with screams and shocks
29 May 2006 | by See all my reviews

The hypnotist professor Monserrat(Boris Karloff) has invented a device for controlling the minds people and sharing the sensations. His mean and wicker wife(Catherine Lacey)utilizes the technique about a man called Mike(Ian Ogilvy), a young fond disco into swinging London. She controls the Mike's mind and the exciting pleasures that provides. Ominous and awful killings are happening and the police investigates certain unsolved murders have taken place ,they suspect he could be the perpetrator as horrible acts.

This is an exciting and interesting film, though lack luster and cheap production values horror tale. The movie has suspense,shocks,genuine chills and a little bit of blood. The film packs grisly terror ,eerie atmosphere which converts pretty sinister towards the ending with its surprisingly finale. Picture is interpreted by the great Boris Karloff who was in frank decadence. Ian Ogilvy is habitual in all films directed by Michael Reeves and starred various horror films(And now the screaming starts)and television series(The Saint).Besides appears uncredited Susan George, previously her famous success(Strawdogs).The peculiar screenplay is realized by the actor Tom Baker. Motion picture is regularly directed by Reeves,he only directed four films ,exclusively terror,¨Witchfinder general¨,¨Castle of living dead¨and ¨Satan's sister¨,but he committed himself suicide. The flick will like to Boris Karloff fans.
