Revisited on Watch TCM. The higher resolution did nothing to improve the film.
Escaped convict Bickford arrives in a small Caribbean village posing as a priest and gets tangled up with local vamp Torres who’s promised herself to any man who can slay the giant Manta-Ray that killed her brother. Great production and Bickford’s entertaining performance can’t overcome Torres’s incessant emoting. Boris Karloff plays a lecherous sailor with a couple of lines in a forgettable part.
