Those with a yen for shockers will get limited satisfaction from the story that has been wrapped around Boris Karloff’s initial stalking piece under the Warner banner.

Karloff plays a sensitive-souled musician who twice gets himself into prison by the railroad route. After his original discharge from the bastille he artlessly becomes embroiled with a racketeering gang and in the murder of the judge that had sent him away. Karloff protests his innocence but the governor’s pardon doesn’t get to the prison until after the first electric shock has been applied to Karloff.

An operation brings the executed man back to life. In place of a personality and subconscious the living dead man has acquired a supernatural power. He is able to recognize his enemies and to track them down one by one.

As the head menace, Ricardo Cortez is loaded down with no easy assignment. About all he can do is look wise, keep a sneer well oiled and give the living dead man stare for stare. Edmund Gwenn plays the soul-probing scientist true to traditional screen requirements.
