Quite Good

Teenager Emmaline (Lorrie Richards) discovered the drowned body of her aunt (Lynn Bari), and as an adult returns to the family mansion as a married woman. Eventually, she falls for the caretaker's nephew, and remembers who the real killer was.

This was Robert Young's only directing credit, as he was primarily a writer and worked on such films as "Escape to Witch Mountain" (1975). Was he an adequate director? I would say yes. This is a gem of a film.

There are aspects of this that sort of call to mind "Carnival of Souls" and even "Diabolique" to some degree. I might be overstepping the bounds by saying this is in the same league, but it definitely deserves more attention than it has received.
