Roger Corman's favorite two words- Public Domain
29 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

yes, he takes a story from Robert Louis Stevenson and because its so old no one actually owns the rights, he is able to actually rewrite it to look nothing like the original story.

Still, this is a lot better than most of Roger's output. Nice portrayals, interesting characters, and so on. And it keeps you engaged for most of the run, so not that bad.

An officer whose wife dies has no desire to live, so he joins the suicide club and plays along with them even after they kill his friend. He falls in love with another client, there's a bunch of scenes...and well, it's fun to watch.
