Sir Christopher Lee and Charlemagne Films optioned two other books by John Blackburn, "Portrait of Barbara" and "Bury Him Darkly", which were envisioned as sequels to this movie, with Lee re-creating the role of Colonel Bingham, but it didn't work out. They also optioned some of Dennis Wheatley's books, but only "To the Devil a Daughter" was ultimately made by Hammer. See more »

This is one of the lesser talked about films starring the superb duo Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee. It's pretty good film but it is a bit slow - this one could have done with a little quicker pace.
3 prison deaths that appear as suicides on the surface stirred some questions but once 3 more trustees and 30 orphan children are in a bus accident and most die then police colonel Bingham (Christopher Lee) starts seriously investigating. Sir Ashley (Peter Cushing) agrees to help investigate the mysterious happenings. It's a supernatural mystery.
