Storyline

In 1795, in England, the young woman Catherine moves to the house of her fiancé Charles Fengriffen in the country to get married with him. When she arrives, she feels interest in the portraits of the Fengriffen family, particularly in the one of Charle's grandfather Henry Fengriffen, which seems to have a sort of evil entity possessing it. While admiring Henry's face, a severed hand attacks Catherine through the picture on the wall. Later, she gets married with Charles, beginning her journey of mystery, eerie apparitions, secrets and deaths, and having her days filled with fear and the nights with horrors in a cursed family. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

More shocking than you'd expect!
20 February 2004 | by (Eastbourne, England) – See all my reviews

When I saw this movie it caused deja-vu, and not only because I've visited Oakley Court, where all the exteriors were shot. The wooden balcony made me think, "There's going to be a disembodied hand crawling along the floor in a minute," and then there was! Another childhood horror movie memory identified!

This is a pretty good film, although the theme of ghostly rape-revenge may not appeal to some. Peter Cushing is excellent as usual, as is Ian Ogilvy as the doomed bridegroom. His final scene when he takes his revenge on the corpse of his brutal ancestor is really quite disturbing!
