However, he soon suspects that his bride may be using voodoo to diminish his enemies.

In 'Strange Confession' (1945) scientist Jeff Carter (Chaney) is developing a vaccine that he hopes will cure influenza. However, crooked businessman Roger Graham (J.

Finally, in 'Pillow of Death' (1945) Wayne Fletcher (Chaney) is suspected of killing his wife following the revelation that he was unfaithful during their marriage.
