John Stuart is blown into a derelict building to find cockney Leon M. Lion crashed for the night; a corpse; a blonde looking for her father; a couple, one of whom is mute, wanting to view the property at midnight - plus a handcuffed couple hanging from a crumbling staircase and a bus and train race to the Channel ferry.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A peculiar and neglected early Hitchcock stage adaptation."
‑ Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
"Unsatisfactory early tongue-in-cheek comedy/suspense yarn directed and cowritten by Alfred Hitchcock."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"The plotting is half-baked and the special effects are so crude that they make the back projection in Marnie look like the last word in verisimilitude."
‑ , Time Out
"Highly entertaining but practically incomprehensible."
‑ Michael W. Phillips, Jr., Goatdog's Movies
"A technically compelling Hitchcock film which, while made early in his career and rather crude, displays his genius at creating visual suspense."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
