Tagline: The story of a psychotic killer!

Plot: Gimmicky B-movie fright master William Castle (THE TINGLER, STRAIT JACKET) enters the adventurous (for 1961!) world of gender psychology in this effective suspense picture. Bombshell Emily (Jean Arless) murders the justice of the peace after he marries her to Warren (Glen Corbett) a hotel bellboy whom she paid to do so. The odd couple then move to the sleepy town of Solvang, where she works for Warren's childhood guardian Helga (Eugenie Leontovich), a mute, wheelchair-bound old woman. Emily terrorizes Helga, knowing that Helga has no way of informing anyone about her murderous manners. Warren's half-sister Miriam (Patricia Breslin) begins to unravel some family secrets--but not before the body count increases! This low-budget "tribute" to the previous year's PSYCHO featured a "fright break" in its theatrical run which allowed views to get their money back if they were too scared to watch the conclusion.
