In this film, a man shows up. He is accused, though never convicted of the murder of a man. The man's widow comes on the scene and is torn apart with distress. There is all kinds of endless gnashing of teeth. One man is so afraid that he leaves after an anxiety attack. There is no haunting and there is no castle, just lots of nondescript characters sitting around worrying. The final part of the film is reasonably entertaining, as a priest comes on the scene. This is probably Murnau experimenting with cinema. Had he put out another movie like this one, there may not have been any more. Most of the dialogue is presented in boxes that seem to lack any soul at all.
