Hammer House Of Horror: Visitor From The Grave (Peter Sasdy, 1980) (TV) **1/2
29 October 2007 | by (Naxxar, Malta) – See all my reviews

Again, a number of Hammer veterans were involved in this episode – namely director Sasdy (TASTE THE BLOOD OF Dracula [1970], HANDS OF THE RIPPER [1971]) and writer John Elder (a pseudonym for Anthony Hinds); however, the plot is totally predictable – down to the unoriginal 'revelation' (even if it does work in a final ironic twist)! Even worse are the histrionic performances of the heroine (recovering from a spell in an insane asylum), a female fortune teller she consults (after she keeps seeing a man killed by her in self-defense) and the Swami (hilariously named Gupta Krishna!) to whom the latter refers the leading lady. The hero, then, is played by future "Manimal" Simon MacCorkindale. In the end, it's all harmless enough – but also one of the lesser episodes in this entertaining horror series.
