In this engaging costume melodrama of skulduggery on the low seas set back in the 18th-century, the Royal Crown suspects a bit of smuggling is going on in this locale, and they send Captain Collier and his crew to check it out. As the Captain gets into his investigation, mysterious swamp phantoms cloud up the real issue which seems plain enough to see. Captain Collier suspects that the odd village vicar might be hiding something, and what better way to do that than by fortuitous ghosts to scare away the curious, or by posing as someone he is not?

Hammer was originally due to film "I Am Legend" (the Richard Matheson
novel) under the title "Night Creatures", but this was abandoned when the BBFC informed them that they would not pass the film. As Hammer had promised the U.S distributors a film called "Night Creatures" the title was passed on to the already completed Night Creatures
(1962) instead. See more
