A young couple move into a house and find that what has happened there still resonates in its rooms. The past story is related but it begins to echo in the young couple's relations.
Superb mystery with supernatural resonance with the plot of Sewell's previous The Medium (1934). The flashback story within a story elements borrowed from Sewell's previous Latin Quarter (1946) which moves the pace briskly along, a superb cast and a contemporary twist ending make this British B-movie film making at its very best. The films that Sewell made for Wintle and Parkyn's Independent Artists at Beaconsfield are all top notch and worth searching out.
