OK - I can go either way with this film - Noir or Horror. Definitely a Thriller-esque movie with John Carradine as the lead, what's not to love?

Another fine movie from Edgar Ulmer - The Black Cat, Detour, The Naked Dawn, Man from Planet X - doing what he really did best, storytelling. He had a methodical documentary approach to his films that lets the viewer observe rather than be forced fed. He never makes the viewer feel dumb and encourages our imaginations to get ahead of him just so he can snap you back to his tale. A true under appreciated talent that stayed in budget productions rather than have to conform to the major studio bosses influence.

Although this is a budget piece, you can still observe what a good director can do with a descent script and good, albeit under appreciated, actors.

7!
