Edward L. Cahn directed this classic film about a man's family having to pay the price for a 180 year old voodoo curse. Eduard Franz is Jonathan Drake, a man who brother has just been killed and whose head has been stolen. Drake must find who is behind this before he becomes the next victim.
I love this film!! It is very low budget but a hell of a lot of fun. You have Henry Daniell as the villain who shrinks heads, Valerie french as the lovely daughter of Drake, Frank Gerstle and Grant Richards as detectives who find more than they bargained for and lastly you have the unforgettable Paul Wexler as Zutai, the servant of Daniell's character of Dr. Zurich, whose lips are sewn shut and who wears sandals made of human skin.
The movie is brisk and quick and never lets up. This is perfect for Halloween viewing and is now available again on DVD from Shout/Timeless on the series entitled Movies 4 You: Timeless Horror which also includes "I Bury The Living", Snake Woman" and "Face Of Marble".
