The original German title referred to the successful TV series Stahlnetz (1958), which is based on the US police series Dragnet (1951) (it even used the famous "Dragnet" theme song). The German theatrical trailer showed the actual title "Im Stahlnetz des Dr. Mabuse", whereas the voiceover of the trailer announces "Das Stahnetz des Dr. Mabuse" (which means "The steel net..." instead of "In the steel net...").

This film has had more titles than some folks have shorts.No matter what the title we do have a nifty follow up to the classic 1000 Eyes Of Dr Mabuse.
A man is murdered on a train which brings in Inspector Lohmann.In a rather gruesome scene a woman representing the Chicago Mafia is roasted alive by a flame thrower in a truck.This brings in Joe Como,FBI agent.Or is he really Nick Scapio from the Chicago mob?
Dr Mabuse wants to make a deal with the Chicago gangsters for some undisclosed reason.He has a chemical which makes a person a slave to the will of Dr Mabuse.Mabuse intends to take over and destroy a nuclear power plant in the city as a show of good faith.Cleverly using prisoners from the local prison Mabuse intends to create mass havoc & terror.
This film is never dull and will keep you guessing right until the end.It also has one of the more paranoid endings in the Dr Mabuse series.If you can find it enjoy it!
