Rather Boring Episode
23 August 2011 | by See all my reviews

London during the second world war and a serviceman returns home unexpectedly only to find his lover Alison in bed with someone else. A German bomb falls on the house maiming the serviceman and killing his lover . 25 years later a couple, Jon and Kit move in to the house and find a portrait of Alisonwhich Jon becomes obsessed with

This is very much in the vain of an old haunted house type thriller but fails to engage . If you've seen the episode of The House That Bled from HAMMER HOUSE OF HORROR then it's rather bland with little to the way of twists and imagery There is also something annoying about the episode where you're expecting it to be revealed that the American found in bed with Alison at the start of the episode is in fact Jon because he's certainly old enough to have served during the second world war . This might be an ambiguous point where it's left to the audience to make up their own mind but is likely to coincidence more than anything else and makes this plot thread very underdeveloped

There is another aspect to the production that sticks out and that is during a party scene everyone is bopping away to the most unfucnky and anti groovy soundtrack possible and one can't help thinking the track was subject to copy right hence got changed to something in the public domain
