Description by OLDIES.com:

The dead return to speak to the living! At least, that's what vulnerable and gullible mourners are led to believe when they visit the temple of the Great La Gagge, a charlatan psychic who stages rigged seances with his greedy henchman in order to fleece unsuspecting believers out of their hard-earned (or inherited) cash. La Gagge leads his latest potential victims, two wealthy widows utterly smitten by the Master, on a wild ghost chase across the Atlantic to the base of the Sphinx and the banks of the Ganges, as part of his scam to steal their fortunes.

Mystic Circle Murder, a low budget Merit Pictures production, is notable for a rare screen appearance by the widow of the great escape artist and magician, Harry Houdini. Madame Houdini delivers her definitive judgement on the efforts of the living to contact the dearly departed. Her verdict: don't waste your money or time trying to talk to the dead, because if her beloved Harry couldn't send back a message for her, what chance do the rest of us have to commune with the spirits?

Product Description:

A mystic charlatan is conning old ladies out of their fortunes, until he scares one to death and must answer for his crimes.

Rating 0.5 Skip it Movie Lover: from MIDDLE VILLAGE, NY US -- October, 21, 2010

I don't know how much they paid Madame Houdini to appear briefly twice in this movie but it wasn't nearly enough to cover her embarassement if she ever saw it. The film doesn't start off badly, in fact I kind of enjoyed the first 15 minutes or so, even though the copy is choppy and appears to have had scences lost. But then the action moves to Egypt and on to India and it becomes downright silly...if not insulting to Egyptians and Indians. This definetly a film I would not bother to watch again.


Rating 2.5 Mystic Circle Murder Movie Lover: from Oil City, PA US -- July, 21, 2007

I believe the cover art is what sold me on this DVD. The movie starts off great and you feel that it is going to offer a lot for the money but half way through it starts "stretching the imagination." All in all...it is still a good one to watch and enjoy...remembering its age and the era in which it was made. (Seeing Houdini's wife, though briefly, is a plus.)
