Horror movies Review
Empire builder Leo Grainger (George Zucco) and his accountant Dr. Lake (Ian Keith) were divested, framed, and sent up the river for five years. While out of the way someone dispatched Mrs. Granger leaving her daughter Gail (Sharon Douglas) to fend for her self.
Well Leo is back and ready for a little revenge and with luck the discovery of his late wife’s dispatcher. He invites all the usual suspects to a treasure hunt, making no pretenses as to his real feelings. Little do they know the house is full of secret passages and deadly traps. We see each person as the make their decision to join the hunt. All but one who is already dead; so his son Jeff Kingsley (John Whitney) attends to find he knows the stepdaughter of Leo. The question is is he on her side or just another money grubber?
Now where have we heard a story of an unexcitable island with a houseful of suspicious guests, a charming girl and one guest substitute that she is attracted to? Oh and of course justice is done. This is acutely based on the play “Angle Island” by Bernadine Angus.
