Im Banne des Unheimlichen (lit. Under the Spell of the Unknown); English title The Zombie Walks, a.k.a. The Hand of Power) is a 1968 West German crime film directed by Alfred Vohrer and starring Joachim Fuchsberger and Siw Mattson [de].[1] It is part of a series of German screen adaptations of Edgar Wallace's thriller novels. The film's original working title was The Laughing Corpse, and it was released in Spain as Mark of the Scorpion.


Scotland Yard's Inspector Higgins (Joachim Fuchsberger) becomes involved in a case that began with the corpse of Sir Oliver supposedly laughing from inside of his own coffin during his funeral. Soon people who were close to Sir Oliver start to get killed. Sir Oliver's brother Sir Cecil swears he saw his dead brother jaunting around the countryside in a skeleton costume. Higgins teams up with reporter Peggy Brand (Siw Mattson) and his bumbling chief Sir Arthur (Hubert von Meyerinck) to unmask the villain who is killing people with a poisoned scorpion ring.



The screenplay for the film is based on the novel The Hand of Power by Edgar Wallace.[2]


The FSK gave the film a rating of "16 and up" and found it not appropriate for screenings on public holidays. The film premiered at the "Europa" cinema at Oberhausen on 26 April 1968.[2]
