Two investigators look into the situation of a man whose head is being sought by an oriental cult.

I like mysteries, too, especially when they’re as loaded with odd plot twists, interesting characters, exotic atmosphere, and dark, horror-like touches as this one. This was the first of a short-lived series of movies based on a radio series, and it caught my attention from square one, with one of the primary plot elements involving a man being followed by an ugly peg-legged man carrying a bag (“just big enough to hold a human head”). Only time will tell whether I will cover any other movies from this series.
