A loose remake of Fritz Lang's 1933 classic, dubbed from East Germany.

This has too many Bond tropes to count, including the actor Gert Frobe (Goldfinger) as a police detective. "The head of an asylum is controlled by the spirit of the dead, evil genius, Dr. Mabuse who had hypnotized him."

Lots of fun house mirrors and madness.
