The opening shots of this film are blurry with undefined shapes and objects, however suddenly a light is switched on and the change in lighting brings about sharper and more detailed images. The lighting techniques in the opening sequence are an indication of things to come in the film. It is an early experiment with lighting and varying the contrast levels from shot to shot. In some shots there are plenty of grey hues and details are easy to make out, while in other shots the faces and clothes of the characters are blown out to white. The blowing out to white is used most effectively when Aileen Pringle is interrogated by investigations - as her facial features can hardly be made out, it is hard for us as viewers to tell whether or not she is lying.
However, other than interesting lighting and camera techniques, the rest of the film is pretty flat. The mystery at the heart of the film is intriguing, but it is never really involving since the film lacks strong character development. Robert Elliott plays his hard-boiled detective as a one-dimensional stereotype too, which makes it hard to want to root for him and his desire to solve the mystery at hand.
As an early sound film, the audio quality is not too great, with a bit too much atmospheric sound and perhaps some music could have helped. However, the timing of when a character says "and he fired" followed by a bang, and the timing between dialling for the police and a sudden siren sound, show that some thought was indeed put into what the film was going to sound like it.
It is a flawed film, but other than a blatantly contrived ending it makes quite satisfactory viewing, and the lighting work is simply fascinating. Explore popular and recently added TV series available to stream now with Prime Video. Start your free trial.

Reviewer: jtyroler - favorite favorite favorite favorite favorite - March 26, Subject: Great, campy mystery program! The writing is pretty good, even if several of the episodes are reworking of existing works.
The thing that I love about this show is when the deep voice says, "Murder at Midnight". If there's any mention of the time, especially if it's really late at night, you can expect you know what to happen - after all, it's in the title. Reviewer: marooned2 - favorite favorite favorite favorite favorite - April 18, Subject: Suprisingly good This is such a nice show.
Amazing acting and script. I enjoyed almost every episodes. I dare say it was ahead of its time. Many characters and situations later became the main ingredients of many Hollywood thriller or slasher movies. Some episodes don't have a "proper" finale good vs evil guys so it makes this show even more realistic. Of course, some episodes suffer from too much irrational or illogical elements, but, all in all. Very dark, chilling and engaging. Highly recommended.

Reviewer: dreibel50 - favorite favorite favorite favorite favorite - February 28, Subject: excellent little show for a small syndicated production, there's a lot to like - strong scripts, wonderful acting, and an overall noirish atmosphere makes for a great listen. The show's producer, Anton M. Its silly at times, but always camp.
Much more "noir" than "Inner Sanctum", it takes the hardboiled approach to the supernatural.
