A Mysterious Housekeeperv reveals the history of an eerie country house to a pair of prospective buyers.
I saw this movie for the first time on Kraft Mystery Theater in the summer of 1962.I was twelve years old and it gave me a real chill.I did not see it again until November of 2013. Over the years I had tried to find House of Mystery, but was unsuccessful until it was posted on YouTube. When, after half a century, I did view it again, I found to my delight, that I still was able to experience that delicious chill of fear, that I so love when i saw the climax.
I have a great love of ghost stories. The Uninvited, The Haunting, The Innocents, and on television such fare as the Thriller episode, The Hungry Glass" are all favorites of mine and House of Mystery ranks with them.
The pace is quick and has the same feel as one of those "B" shockers from the 1940's. It also has an effective and spooky musical score to add add to the viewers goosebumps. Jane Hylton's performance particularly stands out.
If, like me, you are a fan of classic English ghost stories then I think you will enjoy House of Mystery. It's not easy to locate but it is worth the search.
