Since it is not cricket to divulge too many details, suffice it to say that Curt Siodmak's script explains the macabre goings-on psychologically and otherwise. Full Review

Rating: B -- Wastes a captivating original premise and some fine performances with a stiff script and a cop-out ending. Full Review

It gives more credit for intelligence than the average thriller. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- This is one of those semi-classic horror films which contains unforgettably creepy sequences and one or two great performances along with a great deal of fudged plotting. Full Review

This is fairly spooky despite its silly story and modest budget Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- As it torments Lorre, the hand becomes a manifestation of the metaphorical notion of a hand tugging us toward our destiny or reaching from the past to punish us; an alternate, utterly appropriate title might be 'The Hand of Fate.' Full Review

Description by OLDIES.com:

Hilary Cummins (Peter Lorre), the devoted secretary to wheelchair-bound piano virtuoso Francis Ingram (Victor Francen), has a passion for the occult. Poring through every book on the supernatural he can find in Ingram's vast library, Hilary begins to imagine strange and terrifying things. But after Ingram's tragic death, the line between reality and unimaginable terror is blurred as the severed hand from Ingram's corpse begins killing everyone in the villa!
