The first question is why the bus driver, killed in the accident, is burnt when there was no fire during the accident.

An angry man passing by accused them of trespassing and explained he would report them to the landlord. Lee and Cushing explained they would talk to the landlord to explain their activities before asking the landlord's name. The man replied, "His name is Charles."

I think this movie was the premis for the modern movie Get Out. It's too coincidental not to be. That being said it's not a bad movie. A little slow until the end but worth the wait. It's more mysterious than horror until the conclusion. If you're a Cushing fan I think you'll like it.
