Early portmanteau film, combining horror and supernatural themes across three murder stories. The first has an eerie, circular feel; the second is a more straightforward love triangle and the third a political revenge piece. The stories are a little clumsily pulled together by a narrator, although the film as a whole entertains.. The eeriness of the first section, in particular, has an affecting feel about it, with the third section notable for an over-made-up Orson Welles almost skewing the whole piece with his presence. Alan Badel is in every story, although why is a mystery in itself.
