Hammer Film Production’s return to period supernatural horror is a strongly rendered traditional ghost story set in Britain’s Edwardian time. While not as scary as Robert Wise’s The Haunting, or as surprisingly twisting as John Hough’s The Legend of Hell House, director Jack Watkins conjures cheerless, grieving environs, and, most importantly, constant fear. Most striking are the period sets; I kept fancying Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee would burst forth at any moment with Lee baring his vampire fangs and Cushing crossing two iron candle sticks together.
