Trivia

When Director Alfred Vohrer fell ill during the shooting, producer Horst Wendlandt hired director / writer Will Tremper to complete the remaining scenes. According to Assistant Director Eva Ebner, Tremper didn't exactly know what to do (and wasn't interested either) and most of the scenes were directed by Ebner and Cinematographer Karl Löb (both long-time companions and friends of Vohrer as well).

The return of the Hexer
13 April 2007 | by unbrokenmetalSee all my reviews

After the success of "Der Hexer", this sequel was shot 9 months later by the same director with mostly the same cast - unfortunately Joachim Fuchsberger did not return. Obviously, the sequel had another problem from the start: the first movie had revealed the secret identity of the "Hexer" in the end, so the possibility for a similar surprise was gone. Nevertheless, a solid story was put on celluloid here which makes it an average contribution to the Edgar Wallace series at least. The basic script idea is that the Hexer ("wizard") returns to England once again because murderers commit crimes under his name, so he wants to punish them and prove his innocence.

A well-known still from the advertising material shows Klaus Kinski (who plays Edwards, the butler) rising like a vampire in a coffin. It stems from a scene that originally was the opening sequence, but cut before the TV broadcast and video tape release. Still Kinski gets a couple of good scenes, watch him playing a harp for example! Brigitte Horney and Barbara Rütting are both giving strong performances as well, even though the most terrifying scene to get you on the edge of your seat is surely when the boy is locked in the tiger cage.
