This is a brilliant film!
13 June 2000 | by (Copenhagen, Denmark) – See all my reviews

This is a brilliant film! A psychological thriller and also a clever variation on A CHRISTMAS CAROL. Peter Cushing, in perhaps his best performances ever captured on film (along with THE ABOMINABLE SNOWMAN, FRANKENSTEIN AND THE MONSTER FROM HELL and the BBC play "1984"), plays an unsympathetic bank manager blackmailed into robbing his own bank by cunning gentleman-thief Andre Morell (in a rock solid performance). The great moment comes when Cushing who has bullied his staff all the time must beg them to help him cover up the robbery - if not, his family will be killed. I won't reveal more, it would spoil the fun.
