Storyline

Molly is an alcoholic and still has delusions that her ex-husband Charlie can be won over. She has just bought a home that has been unoccupied for 30 years, thanks to the story about a ghost in the attic. When she invites him to her new house under a misleading need to talk, Charlie makes it clear he is through with her and has found someone new. Taking advantage of his weak heart, Molly gets Charlie up into the attic, with surprising results. Written by Ron Kerrigan <mvg@whidbey.com>

The Attic
13 November 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Geraldine Page stars as Molly Wheatland, an alcoholic divorcée who has just purchased a house at a cheap price because of its well-deserved reputation of being haunted, that is the spirit of a bank robber named Jamie said to haunt the attic. Molly plots to use the ghost to get back at her ex-husband Charlie(played by Leif Ericson) who refuses to reconcile with her. She hopes Jamie will scare him to death due to his bad heart, but doesn't take into account how Jamie feels about this... Page is quite good as always playing an unsympathetic character, and this episode does have its creepy moments as well, though viewer really feels for poor Charlie, undeserving of his fate.
