On the beach one night, Christine Faber, two years a widow, thinks she hears her late husband Paul calling out of the surf...then meets a tall dark man, Alexis, who seems to know all about such things. After more ghostly manifestations, Christine and younger sister Janet become enmeshed in the eerie artifices of Alexis; but he in turn finds himself manipulated into deeper deviltry than he had in mind...

When Martin and the detective break up the séance, Martin explains to Christine that he has investigated her previous husband's (Paul) past. Instead of referring to the previous husband as "Paul", he refers to him as "Martin" (his own character's name). See more »
Alexis, do you think I'd make a good celestial companion?
Darling, I think you'd be wonderful!
And we'd love each other through all eternity?
Oh, even longer!

I have to echo most of the comments that appear here. This is a stunningly photographed dream of a movie showcasing Alton's genius. I'm hoping the powers-that-be in the film and/or preservation industries read the commentaries on IMDB. The print of this that I taped from commercial television is ATROCIOUS! Another plus for me is that the star is Lynn Bari. What a dame! Someone once called her the Paulette Goddard of B movies. That crack does both of these lovely ladies an injustice. I hope that someday, someone (Criterion?) will restore and reissue this masterpiece on DVD.
