In a decaying mansion in England, the former Lord Donald Brocklebank lives with his wife Nancy, who is very ill, and their schizophrenic teenage son James, who needs to use several pills to stay calm. Donald is completely broke, apparently for paying for Nancy's medical treatment, and has been pressed to sell his manor. One day, Donald needs to travel early in the morning to London for business and he summons Nurse Mary. However, James decides to prove to his father that he is capable of taking care of his mother and he closes all the accesses to the house and locks himself with his mother inside the house. He gives an overdose of pills to his mother expecting to heal her and Nancy dies. At the funeral, there is another problem with James driving Donald insane. Written by

I thought this movie was great, A lot of people commented on it falling short of the 'horror' genre, but I don't think it was ever meant to be one. Watch it as a tragic drama, and these disappointments fade. I think Leo Bill did a fantastic job and I felt drawn into his character even further by the camera's exceptional use as he moves about the house. I don't want to spoil anything, so suffice to say it was a well acted movie with great camera-work, an exceptional cast and the overlying doom which permeated throughout the movie drew me in sometimes - enough to identify with some the universal aspects of the story and at times feel a shudder through my back, more so than any 'horror' show I've seen in the last few years.
