Judge Drake (Herbert Heyes), a man who has not only fallen from grace within his profession but is on the run from the law with a 10,000 Dollar ticket to his head, seems to be hiding out at doc Porter's (Thomas Browne Henry) private insane asylum, but only reporter Kathy Lawrence (Lucille Bremer) this lead on him, which is why she persuades private eye Ross Stewart (Richard Carlson) to go undercover and become a patient of the asylum - to ultimately get his hands on the judge for real.

Stewart is quick to find out there are several things wrong with the asylum, which is run almost like a prison, and that there is a special closed ward for violent patients that's especially guarded by the doctor and his sadistic head warden Larson (Douglas Fowley). Still, thanks to some trickery Stewart comes face to face with the judge, but is soon found out by the judge and Doc Porter and locked into a cell with one of the asylum's violent patients, a former boxer (Tor Johnson) who starts fighting everytime he hears a bell.

Fortunately though, Kathy on the outside has somehow figured out Stewart is in trouble and has made her way into the asylum with a gun - and eventually, she saves Stewart's life. Then though, the boxer breaks loose and takes care of violent warden Larson before the police arrives thanks to the phonecall of another sympathetic warden (Ralf Harolde) and takes care of everything.


Nice little thriller of the insane asylum variety that keeps its audience entertained thoughout thanks to very steady pacing and a pretty elegant directorial effort. And even if the story is not 100% plausible, it's told in a believable way and at least makes sense as long as the film is on. Apart from that, this is probably the first movie in which Tor Johnson plays more than a one-dimensional character - and he's quite convincing as the tragic has-been plagued by fits of violence.
