The rest of the cast includes Leif Erickson, Lionel Atwill, Frank Reicher, Nils Asther as a Swami who has more to do with the murders than even he suspects, Irene harvey and Don Porter.
This is actually a quite shocking film that will have you intrigued, an if you haven't seen it you'll never guess the ending. When i first saw this film when I was about 7 years of age, I really didn't like it much, but now at my age I can watch it and enjoy it for what it really is...a totally twisted and shocking Universal film that has been overlooked. Beware the Ingston mansion!!
