Brief Synopsis – A psychiatrist becomes the chief suspect when his wife disappears and mysterious notes are found that seem to accuse him of the crime of murder.
My Take on it – This is a film that I came across during my research of films by Christopher Lee and the premise and title intrigued me.
Unfortunately, this is a pretty poorly made and executed story that fails to be gripping or thrilling in any manner.
The casting of Lee in the role of the psychiatrist is the best decision they made with this film because he is able to play this character so well.
He is shown as a character that can be sophisticated and quite shrewd in all that he does.
The story itself doesn’t leave much for the imagination and things play out in a very predictable way which hurts things quite a lot because there is never much to anticipate as the story unfolds.
The detective work by Jon Finch is alright, but he isn’t really able to make things as believable as one might hope for.
Things play out in a mediocre way and that actually makes part of what happens here seem quite laughable which takes away from things even more.
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Sir Christopher Lee, Jon Finch, and several other cast and crew were nearly killed when filming an action scene went wrong. (From IMDB)
Rating – Razzie Worthy (3/10)
