During filming of more than one scene Evelyn Ankers was trying to appear menacing and resentful towards Anne Gwynne. The two actresses were best friends and so both found it difficult to keep a straight face during these scenes and would begin laughing uncontrollably. See more »

Second in the Inner Sanctum series has a college professor (Lon Chaney, Jr.) marrying a former voodoo princess (Anne Gwynne) only to have his ex (Evelyn Ankers) seek revenge. This was certainly better than the previous film but like that film this one here leaves a lot to be desired. I'm a big fan of Ankers and it was nice seeing her play the bad girl instead of the girl always being saved by the hero. She does a very good job here as does Gwynne. The ending is very effective but can't overcome slowness in the first part of the film.
