Edgar Ulmer directed this strange low-budget film for PRC, a kind of modern updating of HAMLET, about a young fatherless man who has a recurring violent death dream about his mother and her faceless lover; his mother is then romanced by a strange man who later proves to be a homicidal maniac who not only tries to kill the mother, but had killed the father years before. The maniac is an outpatient of a sanitarium with a crazy doctor who is the mastermind behind his actions. From the first Italian release of this 1945 film.
