A Lost Lew Landers Gem?, 24 October 2010
Author: gavin6942 from United States

A college psychology student, intent on writing a term paper on how much terror the human mind can endure, learns his answers first-hand as he finds himself the target of a mysterious, hooded killer.

The film opens with the Fallen Angel Saloon, and the masked killer burying someone alive in a graveyard. The killer's eyes are bright and furious -- absolutely terrifying. And then cut to some nice title credits.

Director Lew Landers is many years past his prime here (1935-1944). This film claims to be released in 1963... when Landers would already have been dead, possibly suggesting it was finished without him. And horror reference books seem to know nothing of this one, unfortunately. (This was, as it turns out, Landers' final film.)

The sound on the Mill Creek disc is fuzzy, but the picture seems okay for the most part. This could be cleaned up, hopefully, if anyone ever wanted to give this a proper release. I also love that there is a character referred to only as "Crazy Bill".
