A counterfeit ring, a spooky old mansion, a twisted family of psychopaths, a schizophrenic playboy (HELLMUT LANGE), a criminal mastermind who gives orders ala Dr. Mabuse (SIEGFRIED LOWITZ, and a new bride (KARIN DOR) who is menaced by some mysterious forces. All these elements sound like someone poured a batch of disparate plot elements into a mixer just to see what comes out the other end. The great black and white photography contributes to the eerie atmosphere in this recommended thriller.
Director HARALD REINL worked with his actress wife, KARIN DOR, on numerous Edgar Wallace-based films during the 1960ís among which included The Sinister Monk, The Strangler of Blackmoor Castle, and The Terrible People. --Louis Paul, "Inferno Italia: Der Italienische Horrorfilm"
