Fine Cinematography
16 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The visual imagery is quite striking here. The camera uses the shadows of the black and white to create ghostly scenes. The story is, unfortunately, plodding. I have to agree with the reviewer who talked about the young woman's hysteria being a distraction. When she assists in the murder of the man who will ruin her father for some relatively innocent transgressions, she quickly falls into utter guilt ridden craziness. This is actually a good ghost story with the old house in the rain and the weird stuff at the end of the hallway. David McCallum, who has made quite a comeback, is the spooky time traveller who set about from childhood to bring people back from the dead. Vera Miles is the ice blonde who has the chops for murder (who actually set up the old man). But this goes on and on and seems to never get to the point. We are also not given a good understanding of how McCallum put this all together. Hardwick is great as the blind homeowner who spooks around the house, knowing, but not knowing. Despite its shortcomings, it is great for atmosphere and a good bit of TV.
