A Hidden Gem
21 June 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A classic little Gem, which, for those of a certain age, will recall an era of late films screened just before closedown. Something to give people throughout the land a quick shiver before the anonymous announcer wished them a good night and, ironically, to sleep well.

It belongs to an era of Public Information Films and Late Call, when Late Night TV consisted of a short burst of tasteful stills shown to haunting music before the screen went black.

Almost forgotten now, it was a frequent little visitor to the late slots (well, it was in Scotland) and evokes that 70's 'Thriller' period to great effect, when the nights seemed much darker and more lonely.

Well worth the seeking out- Excellent Structure & Acting.
