"Twilight Zone", British Style
1 September 2015 | by (Ramsey, NJ) – See all my reviews

But Rod Serling could have done a better job with this material, since this kind of stuff was right up his alley. Good premise and good acting jobs by all concerned, and I have to say that these actresses did a better job of screaming than American women, who don't display the anguished facial expressions their British counterparts do.

My objection is that the presentation, which was billed as a horror story, was rather tame by horror movie standards. It was not genuinely scary but more of a fantastic melodrama. I thought I was in for a good, old-fashioned fright film when the story began as a newly married couple tried to buy a house, which is presumably haunted by a ghost. Mercifully, the picture is only 56 minutes long so it didn't wear out its welcome, because the scares never came.
