The basic ingredients of 'Strangler of the Swamp,' the New York Theater's current invitation to gooseflesh, are one swamp, constant and heavy mist which dissipates neither night nor day, and a ghostly strangler. The strangler is the best part of the picture because you never know whether he's real or just a figment of the imaginations of guilty folk. There is the unjust lynching of the fellow who used to operate the hand-ferry over that swamp. He was blamed for a murder another had committed, and before anyone had guessed a contrary solution, he was a ghost and strictly limited to ghostly revenges. Various people die in several ways, but always there is a choice between a natural death and a strangler's handiwork. Eventually the ghost himself becomes visible to the greatest doubter of all, stout-hearted Robert Barrat. But just at the climax, when the young hero is about to die mysteriously and his girl is defending him with a mystic determination to sacrifice herself willingly to the ghost's ministrations, the ghost fades away. Thus the choice of reality or figment remains entirely open, which is a rare and splendid occurrence to record among the little 'B' chillers. Consistency to one side for the time being, 'Strangler of the Swamp' deserves commendation for leaving its complete solution hanging in the air just as the subtler type of ghost is wont to do. (New York Post, January 28, 1946)
