Spoilers Ahead

A nifty little thriller, similar in plotline to Jamaica Inn. It's nothing special but it's an atmospheric and well photographed piece by one shot director Baxter who manages to cram a lot into 40 minutes. A few familiar faces turn up in this, the heroic reporter is played by Tom Helmore, who 20 years later was memorable as Gavin Elster in Hitchcock's Vertigo. It's a rare lead for an actor little known outside that one key role but he handles it quite well.

There are some nice moments of suspense and a few typically flailing fist fights as the reporter, his girl friend and a photographer investigate the mysterious cliff top house of the title.. Comedy relief is provided by the photographer who would much rather stay as far from danger as possible, ironically in the Inn where the real villain resides..

This turns out to be Bob the landlord and he is played by DJ Williams, a familiar supporting actor from Tod Slaughter's films who here enjoys the opportunity of being the baddie himself for a change.

Good fun if you like this kind of thing.
