On Exploder Button: The Devil Commands (1941)

I'm not generally someone moaning about the wasted chances in movies, and really prefer to concentrate on the things actually in a movie, but from time to time, I just can't help myself.

One of these cases is the Karloff-vehicle The Devil Commands, directed by the generally fine Edward Dmytryk. While there is more than a little to like about the film, this week's column will also tell you a lot about its failures of imagination.
