Roots Of Evil
2 November 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Patricia Barry stars as Sheila Devore, an aging actress eager to make a comeback in films, and thinks she has found the perfect vehicle in a script about a witch(seen in the prologue) who was hanged for her crimes, but who wore a reputedly cursed wig that gave her the power of eternal youth, but who must wear it all the time, as its roots take hold, or it will reveal something horrible, which was a warning that goes unheeded by Sheila, who loves the wig, even as the bodies of her enemies start to pile up, and her secret is threatened with public exposure... Barry is believable as the actress, with amusing in-jokes about Hollywood, though the final freeze-frame is more effective than the climatic reveal(though it is still well-remembered).
