While his wife is away, Stephen Byrne—a wealthy, deranged, and failed writer—accidentally murders his maid after she resists his advances. He ropes his brother John into helping him hide the body and then does his best to pin the blame for the murder on his sibling.

MUBI's take

By 1949, Fritz Lang had been exiled to “poverty row”. But stuck with a small budget and no stars, the noir master used the creative freedom to make one of the eeriest, most downright Lynchian thrillers of his storied career. Long buried, it’s been revived with a shot at getting its due.
