Stars William Prince, Jim Backus, Ellen Corby, Christine White and Susan Morrow. A William Castle extravaganza! He had an insurance policy that he heavily promoted, securing him in the event someone died of a heart attack while watching the film. Castle used many gimmicks in his following movies like HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL and THE TINGLER. This one involves a doctor and his leech-like assistant looking for his lost daughter. Who is reportedly -- buried alive somewhere in town! Backus (Mr. Magoo!/ Mr. Howe!) plays the town sheriff with an axe to grind with the "good" doc.
