Boris Karloff gives a brilliant performance as mad scientist Dr. Laurience, a once-respected researcher who goes off the deep end when the scientific community rejects his work. He uses his invention, a machine that transposes the mind of one person to the body of another, for ever more evil purposes, first exacting revenge on enemies, then trying to use it to win the heart of his delightful assistant Dr. Clare Wyatt, played by British ingenue Anna Lee. It's classic Karloff in this unforgettable early horror film from the prestigious British Gaumont Studio at the height of its fame.
