Plot Summary

Bored while officiating a cricket match at a psychiatric hospital, Crossley tells Graves (a visitor) the tale of a mysterious stranger (also named Crossley) who invades the lives and house of a local musician and his wife. The stranger claims knowledge of real magic, which he uses to displace his host and dominate his wife. The musician must find a way to combat Crossley and his seemingly implacable powers. Graves doubts Crossley's claim that the story is true, and begins to believe that Crossley is actually one of the patients.

Trivia This movie was notable for its time, for its use of an electronic and avant-garde music score, which, when heard in theaters in Dolby Stereo, was aurally separating and distorting. Reportedly, forty different music tracks were used for the sound. See more »
