First of all let me correct some informations given in other comments : this is NOT a hammer film , but a tyburn production , produced by Kevin Francis & directed by his brother Freddie (yes that Freddie Francis).It was a refuge for disenchanted hammer regulars trying to make better films than what was being made by hammer productions.In that optical it can be considered a half failure , sure the francis patented photography is there , the sets are nice , the foggy atmosphere , Cushing's masterfull presence but the story is uninvolving and the ghoul is barely seen.It resembles a period drama with just a hint of macabre.
