Anna Maria Monticelli,
In a country house at the turn of a century live a family of eccentrics. Anastasia, the beautiful mistress of the manor, enjoys the amorous attentions of her stepson Blarney so openly that her husband Diapanasius takes out his shotgun and shoots her. The rest of the family accepts her end as a matter-of-fact, and soon - her return as a voyeuristic ghost who interferes with their love lifes. Anastasia has a posthumous son Tadeusz, "born" by clambering out of the tree trunk. Anastasia seduces him too, and drives another men so crazy that they kill her another couple of times. Finally, Tadeusz, the arch-rebel, leads a mob on a raid of the old manor.Written by

"In An Old Manor House" is a disturbing, erotic, chilling ghost story with twists and turns, as well as political rebellion. You may need to watch it a few times to fully understand it, but you won't mind for you'll be mesmerized by its psychological and gothic terror and perverse, sensuous love scenes. Beata Tyszkiewicz is so beautiful and hypnotic as the wicked phantom, Anastazja, you want to be seduced by her yourself! Of course some will object to bizarre horror and incestuous themes. I would recommend it to those who enjoy the fiction of Matthew Lewis, V. C. Andrews, or Anne Rice.
