It was quite a job for this film to live up to the melodramatic promise of its title, though everyone involved certainly tried hard. The title character is the beautiful but deadly leader of a secret society. After several random acts of villainy, the Queen goes too far when she kidnaps Helen, the heroine. Helen's sweetheart, Paul, dashes to the rescue, at which point the film becomes an "old dark house" affair, filled to overflowing with hidden rooms, secret panels, and trap doors. Incredibly, at the end of the film, the unspeakable Queen of the Skull Clan managed to elicit sympathy from the audience by explaining the motivation behind her perfidy as she lay dying. This overripe little entry ran four reels -- and "ran" is certainly the right word.
