The Soul of a Monster (1944)

notes from the dailymotion link: A surgeon is saved from certain death by a diabolical deal in this modern variation on the Faust legend–and of course, that means there’s hell to pay for his reprieve.

(Screenplay by Edward Dein, a former member of the Val Lewton team at RKO.)

personal notes: Interesting but not surprising to find out about the Val Lewton/RKO connection, when I first saw this it reminded me of one of those Lewton/RKO films, with its strong female lead, excellent mixture of horror meets film noir and darkly cinematography. My favorite film ever is actually a Val Lewton film.
