Weird Woman (1944) is an Lon Chaney, Jr., Anne Gwynne, and Evelyn Ankers. The "Inner Sanctum" franchise originated with a popular radio series and all of the films star Chaney, Jr.. The film is one of several films based on the novel Conjure Wife by Fritz Leiber, the others include Night of the Eagle (1962) and Witches' Brew (1980).


Professor Norman Reed (Chaney, Jr.) falls in love with and marries an exotic woman named Paula (Gwynne) while on vacation in the South Seas. When they return to his home town, she is greeted coolly by much of the community, especially Illona (Ankers), who felt that Reed was hers. Strange things begin to happen, including the death of a colleague, which turns people against her even more, especially as she believes in voodoo and other supernatural phenomena. Reed must work hard to prove her innocence and find the real culprit behind the strange doings.
