Fog Island (1945)

STARRING:
Lionel Atwill, George Zucco
DIRECTED BY:
Terry O. Morse
GENRE:
Horror
This strange mystery tale stars two of Hollywood's greatest villains - George Zucco and Lionel Atwill. Zucco (The Mad Ghoul, The Mummy's Ghost) is Leo Grainer, a former convict living on an island with his daughter. Seeking revenge on his old business partners, he lures them to his home where they are soon at his mercy. This forgotten nugget from Producers Releasing Corporation was directed by Terry O. Morse (Godzilla, King of the Monsters) and is an excellent example of the "old dark house" mysteries from Hollywood's Poverty Row. (BW)
