He kills in the name of science...Tombs of ice for the living...Chambers of horror for the dead!  (taglines)

Dr. Leon Kravaal[edit]

  • It's yesterday afternoon to me, but to you it's ten years ago!
  • No other doctor has ever been able to grasp the basic principles of what I am doing. I've explained it to the highest authorities in medicine, and they scoffed at it, calling me insane! I must furnish them a living proof!

Dr. Tim Mason[edit]

  • Metabolism at this time is practically nil!
  • There's no use kidding ourselves - we're in a spot.

Dialogue[edit]

Dr. Tim Mason: [after Kravaal has shot Adams in the back] He's dead!
Dist. Atty. John Hawthorne: Murdered!
Dr. Leon Kravaal: [bitterly] You call everything murder, don't you?

Dist. Atty. John Hawthorne: There must be some way out of this!
Dr. Henry Bassett: What, for instance? We're locked in, no one knows we're here, and we have a madman for a jailer!

Taglines[edit]

  • He kills in the name of science...Tombs of ice for the living...Chambers of horror for the dead!
