New England Coast
14 April 2015 | by See all my reviews

Robert Webber & Nancy Hadley play Andy & Ellen Courtney, a married couple who move into a reputedly haunted home on the coast of New England. They don't believe such tales, but the locals do, who are unsurprised when it does indeed appear the home is haunted by its former owner, a bitter old sea captain named Clausen who seems to be gaining possession of Andy, and is changing his personality to his own, endangering their lives when the captain's murderous ways threaten to return... Nicely atmospheric episode has a fine setting and story, with good local flavor, although some inadequate makeup at the fiery climax almost ruins things!
