Trivia:
The film was given to RCA recording studios in Hammersmith to complete post-production. They engaged Joseph Sterling to edit it. When the film arrived it had been very roughly assembled by someone not used to cutting room procedure; trims tightly wound up, no identification etc. Originly the film's commentary was given by the actor Michael Laurence, who played Sean Merriman. When editing was completed, Hilton Edwards ran the film for Orson Welles. He then decided that he should re-do the commentary.See more »

A superb little chiller., 12 February 2009
Author: 1bilbo from England

This great film is now available as part of the restored version of Othelo DVD.

Glennascaul means "Glen of the shadows" or "Glen of the ghosts". The true significance will become clear as you watch.

Orson Wells appears in the film at the start and also narrates it. His narration is first class - few actors have ever shown a similar ability to place so much into a few inflections of the voice.

I won't say anything about the plot as I do not want to spoil anything. It is a truly great example of what can be done with not a lot of money and a short viewing time.

Best watched late at night in a dark room.
