What it is: Crime drama with horror overtones

A paranoid and possibly psychopathic woman makes life miserable for everyone around her, so much so that they might wish her dead. And it’s known she has an allergy to bee stings…

Apparently, the episodes of EDGAR WALLACE MYSTERY THEATRE were originally second feature movies made in Britain that were repackaged for the series. This is the second I’ve seen, the first being THE MALPAS MYSTERY. It’s not a mystery in the strict sense; the story is mostly focused on the way the woman makes life absolutely miserable for everyone, though it does manage to work up a little sympathy for the woman before it ends. The murder comes very late in the game, with the crime investigation being almost an afterthought near the end of the movie, though it does work up to a very curious and interesting twist. The horror elements include the murder-by-bees plot, as well as the hint of psychopathic behavior on the part of the woman. Nonetheless, it’s a stretch to classify it as horror. Still, it is a fairly entertaining and swiftly moving story.
