Someone At The Top Of The Stairs
10 July 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

As the saying goes, if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is. When two young women, foreign students, turn up at a London bedsit, the landlady is more than enthusiastic for their patronage, even inviting them to set their own rent. A nice upstairs spacious apartment in a friendly boarding house, what could possibly go wrong? Well, there was that strange writing on the door, and that almost ancient sheet of newspaper in the drawer.

It doesn't take long for one of the new tenants to realise there is something terribly wrong here; does a kitten really fall to its death from not such a great height just because someone left a window open? And that's just for starters. Her friend played by Judy Carne thinks it is all in her head, but judging by what follows at the party, she isn't too bright.

Judy Carne is better known for comedy and light entertainment, but here she plays it straight in a drama wherein all the characters are a little too nice, if not like Stepford wives then cult members.
