The Crimson Ghost---attired in black hood and cloak, skull mask and surgical gloves---skulks to an abandoned mansion and informs his henchmen, Louis Ashe (Clayton Moore) and Bain (Rex Lease),of his plans to seize the Cyclotrode, a device invented by Dr. Chambers (Kenne Duncan), that is designed to detect-and-repel atomic bomb attacks. The Crimson Ghost intends to use the Cyclotrode as an offensive weapon for sabotage and extortion via its ability to stop any electrically-controlled mechanism.Written by

Bud Geary wore the robes of the Crimson Ghost, but the voice that came out of the stationary skeletal mouth was that of I. Stanford Jolley, who was billed fourth in the cast. Another actor dubbed Jolley's character's response on the radio. Finally, a fourth actor played the Crimson Ghost's alter ego. See more »
Chapter 11: "Double Murder". Not. There was no double murder or any murder. As the ongoing chapter shows it was self defense. See more »
I only watched this because of the Misfits. This is actually one of the better movies they wrote a song about(they also stole the skull). It's a decent action packed serial but I find it weird that this character was not in a horror movie. It was also highly disappointing that one episode was just characters telling us what has already happened. The ending was such a disappointment that I am seriously considering getting my Misfits tattoo removed. One reviewer said the end was "sudden" and that's a total lie. I completely saw it coming long in advance.
