Setting the 15th-century torture devices in the London Tower amid the court intrigue of that period, Tower of London emerges as a spine-chiller with accent on gruesomeness of the several deaths depicted along the line.

Reminiscence of the Frankenstein series is present here, with Boris Karloff a clubfooted and misshapen giant who is chief executioner and torturor for the conniving Basil Rathbone.

Story, based on historical fact, delves into the continual court intrigues during the reign of King Edward IV. Everyone seems to be indulging in undercover manipulations except the king, with latter’s brother, Richard, Duke of Gloucester (Rathbone) the mainspring of a long-range plot to eventually become ruler.
