Before Dawn

RKO cheapie based on Edgar Wallace's Death Watch, with Wilson as the pretty spiritualist involved in the unmasking of a murderer. Set in an old dark house where loot lies hidden, it's watchable (with a nicely sinister performance from Oland), but pretty routine when one recalls that Pichel made The Most Dangerous Game a year earlier.
