Description by OLDIES.com:
Christine Faber (Lynn Bari) doubts her own sanity after hearing the voice of her dead husband calling to her from the sea. Against the wishes of her new fiance Martin (Richard Carlson), she begins to see a mysterious man known only as Alexis (Turhan Bey) who claims to be able to make psychic contact with spirits from beyond. Although Alexis continually provides accurate information known only to Christine and her late husband, she begins to suspect him of being a fraud. Expressive use of shadows and light add to the macabre sense of nightmare in this masterful chiller.
A grieving widow falls victim to the machinations of a so-called spiritualist, who knows more than he should about her marriage and the death of her husband. He offers to bring peace by contacting the dead man's restless spirit, but she and her sister begin to suspect their medium of paranormal quackery-or worse. An interesting pastiche of horror and noir, with the mystery and moral ambiguities nicely underscored by spooky shadows and supernatural shadings. Bari accepted the part of the grief-stricken woman after its original recipient, Carole Landis, took her own life.
