Robert Enrico had already proved ,in his three-segment "Au Coeur De La Vie" that he could be a genuine fantasy and horror genre director."Le Redevance Du Fantôme" ,an obscure MTV work he made just before his critical success" Les Aventuriers" bears this out: based on a Henry James work,with an obvious lack of means (French TV budgets were not high in the sixties),it succeeds in building a gloomy atmosphere with the noises (footsteps,chirpings,barks,hootings)and a dirge-like music (often using an organ ) written by Enrico's favorite musician ,François De Roubaix.Marie Laforêt is ideally cast as a chanteuse (for she was primarily a singer) who might be ...She performs two songs "pay me my money down" and "Katy Cruel' ,a folksong which was a hit for her in its French language version.Although a bit too long (nothing here can equal any of the three segments of "au Coeur De La Vie" ),this is a must for anyone interested in Enrico's versatile career.
