Vincent Price is a sailor who falls into the clutches of Chinese drug-pushers. An exploitation film, mostly unrelated to Thomas De Quincey’s original book, but full of sleazy imagery. Zugsmith was something of a pulp visionary, producing Orson Welles’ Touch Of Evil before progressing to his own projects. He made the even more bizarre drug movie The Chinese Room in 1966, thereby reaching the pinnacle of his twisted craft.
