Franz Josef Gottlieb
An army gold shipment and its escort vanish in the Ozarks, prompting accusations of theft and desertion but frontiersman Old Shatterhand and Apache chief Winnetou help solve the mystery of the missing army gold.
If you discount the title (and believe me, the "Carpet of Horror" is NOT The Creeping Terror...it simply refers to a stain that is left on the carpets of the various murder victims by the strange murder weapon), this is actually a very engaging little murder mystery/whodunit that keeps you guessing until the very end. It reminds me a lot of the Dr. Mabuse movies, since there are a lot of red herrings pointing toward the true identity of the criminal mastermind.
I was always intrigued by the strange title (how can a carpet be horrorific?) and was pleasantly surprised when I finally found a copy of the film and watched it. I'd definitely reccommend this little gem to any mystery fan.
