- Opening crawl: Old legends - strange tales - never die in the lonely swamp land. Villages and hamlets lie remote and almost forgotten. Small ferryboats glide between the shores, and the ferryman is a very important person. Day and night he is at the command of his passengers. On his little barge ride the good and the evil; the friendly and the hostile; the superstitious and the enlightened; the living and - sometimes - the dead.
[first lines] [Christian picks up a corpse lying on the bottom of Joseph's ferry] Joseph Hart: Can I be of any more help? Christian Sanders: No, thank you, Joseph.
Martina Sanders: The noose! Christian Sanders: Oh quiet, quiet, I say. Can't you see there, you fools, there are only a few vines and roots around his neck? Nothing else. Martina Sanders: It's a perfect noose for anyone who can see. It's the strangler again!
Martina Sanders: The strangler got him. Joseph Hart: Hah! You'd believe in anything, wouldn't you? Why doesn't he visit me? I live closest to his grave. Dark-haired Woman: He will! You, too, are a marked man. Joseph Hart: I'd like to see that old drunken card sharp again. Dark-haired Woman: He was all that, yes, and a no-good. But was he a murderer?
Martina Sanders: And you got what you always wanted, didn't you, Joseph - his ferry? Joseph Hart: What do you mean? Martina Sanders: Nothing... nothing.
- One of the very, very small number of films produced by PRC that are critically regarded as achieving something approaching B-movie status. It's notoriety was enhanced by it's inclusion in William K. Everson's "Classics of the Horror Film" (1974) in which he praised German director Frank Wisbar's work on the film.
