A good imagination can enhance the visual aspects of a "scary" movie.
16 February 2002 | by (St. Catharines. Canada.) – See all my reviews

I saw this film when I was eleven years old and I will never forget the gripping atmosphere which lasted throughout the entire film. This movie was based on a story which I read in one of the Dorothy L. Sayers books of short stories. It was called The Gentleman from America and proved to be a genuine thriller when made into a movie. If it is ever re-released dont miss it it is a top drawer "spook" film with an excellent twist at the end. Why some of these old "creepies" are not available is a shame, they don,t rely on sex and bloodletting just good old atmospherics and imagination.
