Description by OLDIES.com:
Inspired by the radio show of the same name and reminiscent of both Shadow of a Doubt and The Night of the Hunter, Inner Sanctum features a tart and witty script crammed with lascivious one-liners and shadowy photography. A fluid camera prowls classic noir nightscapes - a decrepit boarding house, the banks of the river, a deserted train station and, most eerily, the park on the edge of the wood.
Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 1076 ratings.
INNER SANCTUM was advertised - in part - as a big-screen adaptation of the radio program, without actually saying it was. Simon & Schuster owned the trademark to the name "Inner Sanctum" and the radio program was "borrowing" the use of the IS name under the condition that they pitch a mystery novel every week on the show. So produced Samuel Rheiner and Walter Shenson, wanting to cash in quick on the radio program, got permission from Simon & Schuster to use the name "Inner Sanctum," and skipped the radio program's trademark creaking door (which was copyrighted) and optioned for this low-budget murder mystery. Actually, it is a little more unusual than the standard murder mystery of the time. It was released by Film Classics, Inc., throug MRS Pictures, Inc. For years a 52 minute print missing part of the first reel was floating about and some vendors were selling a VHS copy of this shorter print for $20.00! Thankfully, Alpha is now offering this movie for $5.95 and on DVD. And Alpha's print is the complete 62 minute version so don't delay and grab this today!
a really good little film. unusual and exciting with a suitably gloomy atmosphere. good quality pictur too.
