Plot Sypnosis:


London is fear struck, and Scotland Yard is baffled by a series of strange murders that have plagued the city. Stories of the atrocities, by crime journalists Edmond Bancroft (Michael Gough -- yes, the same loveable 'Alfred Pennyworth' from the new Batman movies), come to their own conclusions missed by the "Yard". This is because of the fact that Edmond is behind these horrible crimes in order to create material for his writing. Along with his assistant, Rick (Graham Curnow) who helps him run a private "Black Museum" filled with murder and torture devices.

VCI has also included the original American International introduction called “HypnoVista, featuring Emile Franchel... Registered Psychologist, that greeted all American theatergoers on its initial release. Features the classic eyeball-gouging binoculars scene. REALLY GRUESOME!!!
