If it's a HAT film you must know roughly what to expect. Good locations. Good Photography. One or two fairly good actors. A bit of sleaze, and, in later years, Maria Rohm. You get all of that in this 1967 thriller filmed in Spain and starring Vincent Price and Martha Hyer (yes! Really) as a Magic Act who tour European Cities and somehow kidnap young girls to be taken to "The House of 1000 Dolls" in Tangier (No I don't understand it either). George Nader, still looking good, investiagates and hits people and is quite rude to nice people, and very rude to some less than nice ones. The girls are good. Harry's Muse Maria is always good, as is Hyer. A great Cinemascope print (from MEDIUMRARE Entertainment Ltd. - If they can do it why can't SPIRIT?) which shows off the exotic locations helps the enjoyment along. A bit of fairly feeble sleaze creeps in (A very poor Mud Wrestling Scene, and some mild flagellation), but I am not really sure it deserves the 15 Cert, but I may be way out of line. It's fun. But not Harry's best (Fu Manchu and Jess Franco movies need to be seen.)

Well-made within the exploitation category. Price and Martha Hyer are good and it's always nice to see the gorgeous Maria Rohm. Film doesn't have pretensions to be anything other than it is and so it works as a competent thriller with touches of spice.

Being a fan of Vincent Price I'm happy to have this one added to my list. I already have The Bat, The House of Wax, The House on the haunted Hill,plus the Adominable Dr Phobes. Personally I am glad that it is DVD region 2, suitable for Europe and South Africa, I dislike the DVD regions.
