Herman Cohen wanted Vincent Price or Orson Welles in the lead. While he claimed they were too expensive, it is also true that by having a British star (as well as director and other crew) he could take advantage of the tax breaks provided by the Eady Levy, designed to assist film-making in Britain.

A Silly Unbelievable Plot Topped Only by Bad Acting
I saw this as a child. The opening scene where a young innocent woman uses a pair of gift binoculars. As she looks through the eyepieces, spikes come shooting out, through her eyes and into her brain, killing her. Apparently, there have been a series of murders of women that the police have been unable to solve. A journalist who writes about gruesome murders harasses the police over their perceived incompetence. He is anathema to the authorities, but they don't have anything they can prove. He has a partner, a young man who follows his every wish, and they have their own black museum, which is a place where weapons used in murders and serious crimes are displayed. As things progressed, there are more and more hideous events. The journalist is always there when things happen. The ending is when it all falls apart. While the movie is good to look at, there isn't much to recommend this.
