Description by OLDIES.com:
An obsessed scientist forces a group of convicted murderers out to sea where he performs grisly glandular experiments in an effort to rid them of their criminal tendencies. The ship's captain leads a mutiny to overtake the doctor and his strongmen, but is turned into a zombie for his trouble! Director Victor Halperin (White Zombie) adapted this lurid tale from an 1899 Jack London story, A Thousand Deaths. It was released by Producers Distributing Corporation (later PRC) and features familiar character actors Irving Pichel (Dracula's Daughter) Skelton Knaggs and Lyle Talbot.
A mad doctor of the high seas believes he can cure criminals with glandular injections. The criminals disagree and end up turning the tables on the mad doctor. Based on the story "A Thousand Deaths" by Jack London.
