On their way to the Nashville Jamboree, the musical trio the Las Vegas Hillbillys - Woody (Ferlin Husky), Boots (Joi Lansing) and Jeepers (Don Bowman) - stop at an old abandoned house where they decide to spend the night. What they don't know of course is that in the cellar of the house, a gang of foreign agents (John Caradine, Lon Chaney jr, Basil Rathbone, Linda Ho) and their gorilla (George Barrows) have put up shop, and they are trying to make everyone believe the house is actually haunted, to keep them away - not that the Hillbillys care too much about that.

Soon though, the gorilla abducts Boots and brings her to his masters for questioning - though it's not quite clear what they want to question her about -, and the others are scared shitless by some artificial ghosts and the like. But at a critical moment, US-agent Meadows (Richard Webb) enters the scene and sorts everything out, and in the end, all the baddies are apprehended while our heroes travel on to the Jamboree.

Surprisingly the film doesn't end here but features a good 10 minutes from the Jamboree as well, having all 3 Hillbillys each perform a song as well as several contemporary country acts ...

 

Oh boy, what a dull horror comedy. This one actually works neither as a horror flick nor as a comedy, not even a single attempt is made to create atmosphere while the comedy is so unfunny and badly timed that there is not a single laugh in the whole film - as a matter of fact, director Jean Yarbrough seems to be totally uninterested in what's going on on-screen. And Lon Chaney jr, Basil Rathbone and John Carradine - three horror greats who have all seen (much) better days - are completely wasted in this one, neither of them has even one good scene. What's more, at best mediocre country songs repeatedly interrupt/prolong the dull proceedings, and why the extended Jamboree footage that makes no narrative sense was added at the end remains at anybody's guess.

Better not watch it.
