Many a B-horror-pic made by a small studio like Monogram or
PRC is undeservedly neglected by the snotty critics
just because it's a B-horror-pic made by a small studio like Monogram
or PRC. This is however not the case with this one, this one did vane into
obscurity & it might be best left there (not that it is particularly
bad, it's just ... rather boring). The
somewhat muddled script concerns many sinister persons taking refuge
from a storm in a roadhouse owned by George Zucco. & as these
Old-Dark-House-tales go, the first murder soon occurs ...
Horror faves Glenn Strange & Charles Middleton play a dimwitted
handyman & an inept sheriff respectively, the heroics are handled by
Bob Livingston (as Robert Randall, his birth-name actually), who by
the way was more famous for his Western roles, having handled both Zorro
(The Bold Caballero) & the Lone Ranger (The Lone Ranger
Rides Again) at Republic as well as their (original) Stony Brooks of the
Mesquiteers (in an incredible 29-picture-run) plus he played the second
Rider here at PRC (6 movies, all co-starring Fuzzy
Much later Livingston would appear in cult faves The Naughty
Stewardesses & Blazing Stewardesses.
Zucco & Strange also appeared in PRC's much better The Mad Monster the
previous year, also directed by Sam Newfield.
