An usual Sam Katzman production
11 March 2008 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

No surprises from this movie. But a rare one. It Takes on the shores on the Mississippi, with gamblers, land owners, planters, pirates and pistol duels between Lex Barker and the bad guy - I don't remember his name. I have already seen that a thousand times.

Patricia Medina is also foreseeable in this second rate production.

But what could we wait from a Sam Katzman one, even directed by William Castle, no the Castle who will amaze us several years later with his chillers such as Macabre, Tingler, House on the Haunted Hill, Mr Sardonicus, etc...

We can however watch it without boredom.
