The student Christina travels from her boarding school in London to the castle of her family in Montserrat for the reading of the will of her father Ernesto that she has never known and recently committed suicide. On the arrival, she spends the night in an inn and the owner tells that nobody lives at the castle. On the next morning, she is taken to the castle by the mute servant, where she meets her weird Uncle Howard, his wife Abigail and his daughter Carmencé and Linda, a blind girl. They tell that her stepmother Herminia is on the deathbed. When she visits Hermínia, she tells her to leave the castle and dies. She starts entwining daydreams and nightmares with reality. When the will is read, she inherits the mansion. She asks them all to remain there and live with her because she is lonely. When she has an encounter with the spirit of her deceased father, he tries to warn her to leave that place that is evil, but it is too late.Written by

Just past the nine-minute mark, when Christina stands next to the guy playing piano, she casts a shadow on the right side of his face, which appears and disappears in each shot. See more »

The 1985 UK video featured the longer print and was passed uncut. For the 1993 Redemption release the shorter version was used and was cut by 1 min 19 secs to heavily edit the rape scene. The Arrow DVD features the same cut print as the Redemption video. See more »
The viewer that purchased the movie in a sale bin for 5 bucks, said it sucked!! Well with the entire movie on the cutting floor I can wonder why. I just finished the movie tonight, and saw the complete uncut version. It is the complete version with all the scenes. The FULL VERSION is great, spend some time to find the right copy, and then write your summary.
