A woman is executed for strangling men. When a scientist with a theory concerning transmutation of spirits takes her body after the execution, the spirit ends up possessing another woman.

This is my favorite of the Halperin Brothers’ horror movies that I’ve seen. It’s genuinely eerie and full of good performances, though I can’t help but notice that they have this thing about superimposed glaring eyes, specifically Lugosi’s glaring eyes. I do have to admire them insofar as they seemed to put as much work into their movies as their budgets would permit; I don’t always care for their results, but I don’t get the feeling they were just churned out.
