Description by OLDIES.com:
In another of his entertaining, disturbingly creepy roles, Peter Lorre plays Stephen Danel, the owner of Dead Man's Island, an off-the-radar colony which uses paroled convicts as slaves. Among Danel's slaves are his beautiful wife, Lorraine (Rochelle Hudson), a caged prisoner herself, and Siggy, his servant (George E. Stone), trapped within a house and yard surrounded by an electric fence. Undercover agent Mark Sheldon (Robert Wilcox) gets sent to the island -- as a paroled prisoner -- and becomes trapped himself. Fascinated by the glamorous Lorraine, Sheldon now has multiple reasons to escape the island, but Danel's sadistic guards maintain a tight circle around the house and grounds.
This suspense-horror film is a B-picture at its best: efficient story-telling, familiar, beloved character actors, and strange plot points. They don't make 'em like this anymore. Newly remasterd.
Lorre is the ringleader of slave traders who trap unsuspecting people.
