One of the better of Merton Park's Edgar Wallace series,
11 September 2013 | by See all my reviews

One of the better efforts in the Edgar Wallace series, this one was directed by Clive Donner who gained plenty of experience as an assistant director before graduating to the director's chair and who was later to direct "A"-feature films such as What's New Pussycat and Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush, Alfred the Great and Vampira. In Sinister Man, Donner was handicapped by the fact that the killer is obvious right from the start. But Donner rises to the occasion. His direction is not only always capable but occasionally inventive, using some remarkably deep focus compositions (for which photographer Bert Mason also deserves credit). Donner also employs an extraordinary large amount of on-location filming which, to say the least, is very effective indeed. And instead of Wallace's characters standing around and talking for an hour, we even have a bit of action in this entry!
