Storyline

While at Potter's Field cemetery doing research for a story, reporter Bob Herrick sees a ghost that resembles him. He shakes the matter off, assuming that he's seeing things because he's overtired. But when he encounters the same ghost in his office, and at his apartment, he begins to worry. While his friends John Walsh and Mark Riceman scoff, his girlfriend Nisa King realizes that this is a doppelganger who is trying to take over Bob's life by isolating him from his friends. As the doppelganger grows stronger, presenting great danger to Bob and his friends, Bob tries to find out whose spirit the doppelganger is in order to prevent it from taking over.

The Doppleganger
15 November 2014 | by AaronCapenBannerSee all my reviews

Tab Hunter stars as newspaper reporter Bob Herrick, who is doing research for an article at Potter's field cemetery when he believes he sees his own self staring back at him. Thinking himself tired, he shrugs it off but later sees himself at his apartment, and his girlfriend(played by Louise Sorel) believes that somehow at the cemetery a doppleganger(one's own phantom double) has latched itself onto him, and now wants to take over his life. His friends scoff, but when they start dying mysteriously, Bob realizes that he must take immediate action to repel the ghost... Moderately interesting tale isn't really that spooky or compelling, but is still watchable enough.
