Paul Decker murders his wife in her Italian villa by drugging her milk and asphyxiating her by gas. He cleverly locks the bedroom from the inside and hides inside a trapdoor in the floor until after the body is discovered by servants. He uses a scuba snorkel connected to tubes on the outside to breathe during the ordeal. Decker's stepdaughter Candy suspects him immediately, especially since no suicide note was found. She also is convinced that he murdered her father years before, but her accusations fall on deaf ears. The ruthless Decker even poisons the family spaniel when the pet takes too great an interest in the mask and realizes he will ultimately have to get rid of Candy too.Written by
The beginning of this film is very strange with a man, Paul Decker, (Peter Van Eyck) crawling around in a dark room and turning off various connections and inserting hoses and then you see him wearing a snorkel. As the film moves on you begin to realize just what is going on and discover that Paul Decker is up to no good and has caused many deaths. There is a daughter who becomes suspicious of her father Paul Decker and she is constantly watching him and even goes to the police, but no one believes her. Jean Edwards, (Betta St. John) tries to help Paul's daughter because she also has a love relationship with Paul, and the daughter and father definitely do not get along. This film will hold your interest and entertain you right to the very end, which is really funny. Enjoy
