| Gruesome but fun
A series of gruesome murders in England have Scotland Yard baffled. Crime journalist Edmond Bancroft mocks the police for not finding the killer. Since he's played by Michael Gough we all know he's the killer.

I saw this film constantly on TV when I was in high school and have very fond memories of it. Seeing it again on DVD it's lacking. The script is REAL stupid, the dialogue terrible and most of the acting is dreadful--Graham Curnow as Bancroft's assistant is especially bad (no surprise that he never made another movie). But it's still worth seeing.

The murders are very bloody and gruesome--by 1959 standards. The opening one is especially sick. But they're so over the top (and completely impossible) that they become fun to watch. Also Gough chews the scenery in every scene he has--especially towards the end. So it's worth seeing for Gough and the murders.

Also this originally opened with a 13 minute prologue about hypnotism which plays a part in the film. It's real silly but hysterically funny. It's available on VCI's DVD (which has an incredibly good print of the movie).
