Night Monster (House of Mystery) 1942

 In this B-picture horror, Nils Asther plays Agor Singh, a mystic who is summoned along with other specialists to the creepy mansion of a rich paraplegic. Also present are Bela Lugosi (the stiff butler) Lief Erikson (an over-sexed chauffeur) Irene Hervey (a psychologist) and Lionel Atwill (as a sleazy doctor).

Police are investigating a series of murders in the neighbouring countryside, and the scares, shadows and sudden deaths soon begin to pile up inside the old house.

The suave mystic explains his methods:
“A little knowledge of the occult is dangerous. Unless it’s used for good, disaster will follow its way, that is cosmic law.”  
Agor Singh (Asther) summons a skeleton 
using his amazing power of 'cosmic substance control'
