Horror movie from the 1940s

This is actually a movie my grandmother remembers seeing as a child and has always stuck with her because it scared her a lot. She says it was about a creature that lived in a swamp and was wrapped in bandages like a mummy. It would abduct people and take them to the swamp, and as they got nearer to it they would age rapidly. There was a part that showed the monster carrying a woman whose hair turned white as her body shriveled up. The creature would walk slowly, dragging one foot with a loose bandage. This movie would have been from the 1940s or possibly earlier. My grandmother watched it on her neighbor’s TV one night. She says it may have been called ‘Swamp Devil’ or something similar. I’m hoping to find it so she can see it again after all these years. Thanks!
