In this low-budget thriller, a ferry captain named Douglas (Charles Middleton) is accused of a murder he did not commit and is eventually executed for the crime. Douglas' ghost begins to walk the marshlands he once called home, searching for revenge against those who wronged him. Beautiful Maria (Rosemary LaPlanche) looks like she could be the ghost's next victim, and her boyfriend Christian (Blake Edwards) must rescue her before it's too late. Film buffs will recall that Charles Middleton played Ming the Merciless in the classic Flash Gordon serials, while Blake Edwards would turn to directing several years later, achieving international success with The Pink Panther and its many sequels.
