Basically this film is a rehash of Gasslight,with a will making conditions right for a plot to send the daughter mad.Why a father would want to put such a condition in a will is rather unclear.in fact much of this film is hazy and unclear.It is always clear that Sid James is playing 2 characters.However one has to assume that he is in league with the doctor who pronounces him dead at the séance.Far too much of this film,for budgetary reasons takes place off screen.Sometimes it is extremely confusing so too often events are referred to rather than witnessed Also the second wife and her daughter are really no more than caricatures.Hammer and Sid James would both get much better.
