Genre:
crime; horror-suspense
Synopsis:
Mobster Jim Keene is blinded, but kills his neighbor Bob who promised him an eye transplant. Police can’t prove anything because Keene makes it look like an accident. Bob’s right eye, however, was “hexed” and Keene (now living with it) can kill a person if he stares at him in anger. When Keene kill-stares his girl friend Nancy, he is overwhelmed with grief and confesses to the murder of Bob. The police inform him that the eye-hex has been an elaborate “hoax” to drive him mad! Keene killed no one, but fell for the performances of G-Men.
