This adaptation of a John Blackburn novel is a very good British horror/mystery, reuniting for the nth time Lee/Cushing, as always very good: the plot revolves around a series of strange deaths of the old philantropic people that sustain an orphanage where lives a little girl, daughter of a psychic (Diana Dors); the final explanation, even if a little contrived and simplistic by today standards, is not without a logic and this mystery is definitely worth your time (and a place on your shelves).
