A series of cannibalistic murders that rocked New York brought glib crime reporter Lee Taylor (Lee Tracy), and the cops, to the Long Island medical research institute of Dr. Jerry Xavier (Lionel Atwill). Aware that he and his four staffers comprise the suspect pool, Xavier asks 48 hours to root out the killer himself-but his elaborate unmasking gambit will run into stunning snags. Early Technicolor pre-Code shocker also stars Fay Wray, Preston Foster, Arthur Edmund Carew. 76 min. Standard; Soundtracks: English DTS HD mono Master Audio, Dolby Digital mono; Subtitles: English (SDH); black and white version.
