Marketed as the first film in "Psycho-Rama...Using subliminal communication!" Subliminal images include single-frame flashes of a devil face, goggle-eyed face with rat in mouth, skull, and cobra head, and messages like "Get Ready to Scream!" See more »
Numerous times scenes shot outdoors spontaneously jump from night to day and back. This is most noticeable in the scenes before Phillip returns to the house to move the body. See more »
This film deals with a young gal who has bad dreams about a haunted house which have put her in a sanitarium and her husband is trying his best to help her with this problem.
The husband takes his wife to a house that looks exactly like the haunted house in her dreams and this is when the story becomes interesting with mysterious people making appearances who claim to be owners of the house and even the care taker of the house becomes a dark side to the story.
Good acting, with plenty of surprises and great for a 1958 film classic. Enjoy.
