Edward Dmytryk directed this thrilling story starring Karloff as Dr. Julian Blair, a man who is attempting to communicate with the dead via brain waves. When his beloved wife is killed in an auto accident he makes every attempt to communicate with her.
He join up with an evil phony psychic who begins to take control of everything and leads the kindly doctor down a path of body stealing and murder.
This is a very enjoyable thriller with Karloff in top form once again. Anne Revere is excellent as the psychic who turns Karloff to a life of crime and despair.
This is part of the Mill Creek set of 6 Karloff films from the Columbia library, and it's one that shouldn't be missed.
