Storyline

Three trustees of the Van Traylen fund have died during the last few months in deaths looking like suicides. However, after a mysterious bus accident involving the last three trustees and thirty orphan kids, Police Colonel Bingham (Sir Christopher Lee) starts investigating. The first question is why the bus driver, killed in the accident, is burnt when there was no fire during the accident. Dr. Ashley (Peter Cushing) uses hypnosis to find the truth about the mysterious happenings. Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

Despite the interest naturally fostered by co.starring Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing, it's the remarkable supporting cast including Fulton Mackay and a young Michael Gambon and a lot of vivid female characters (including a stylish Georgia Brown as the dogged newspaper reporter and Diana Dors in a brown wig in one of her eccentric later character roles; and Kathleen Byron, wasted as usual) that really captures the imagination

SLIGHT SPOILER COMING: There being nothing new under the sun, the final 'revelation' may be anticipated by anyone who remembers the Sherlock Holmes mystery 'The House of Fear' (1945), here given a supernatural tweak...
