Who's playing the organ?
18 November 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Joan Seton (Lucille Watson) poses for artist Derrick De Marney (Charles) in his sculptor's apartment that he rents. There's something weird about the place. It previously belonged to freaky sculptor Beresford Egan (Anton) and there is a presence that lingers on that seems to consume De Marney. Through friend doctor Frederick Valk, they unravel a mystery from the past with a little help from beyond the grave and discover what fate befell De Marney's former lover Joan Greenwood (Christine). Greenwood was also Egan's wife.

You'll probably guess how things will pan out in this film but it's always fun to watch things unravel with these types of films. The end séance sequence will keep you watching and brings the film to a good ending. The acting is occasionally over the top from De Mornay and the housekeeper Lily Kann (Maria) is pretty annoying but the film is worth a watch. So, who's been playing the organ?
