OK made-for-cable-and-video ghost story.
21 August 2003 | by capkronosSee all my reviews

Gabrielle (the very pretty Jennifer Burns) inherits a large, ornate home that belonged to her late uncle, a murderous composer who was writing the "Symphony For the Devil" before being captured and killed by angry townspeople. Gabrielle finds the hidden, unfinished symphony and hires boozy choir director Marius Carnot (Ben Cross) to complete it to be used in her upcoming wedding to Julien Du Pont (Doug Wert). The spirit of the uncle decides this is the perfect time to return to life and coerces stuffy maid Carlotta (Beverly Garland) into helping in his evil schemes, including possessing both his niece and Marius and covering up strangulation murders of prostitutes.

One of the better entries in the ROGER CORMAN PRESENTS cable series is a bit on the slow side, but a decent ghost story with fine acting and good sets, music, photography and costumes. 1950s sci-fi/horror queen Garland is excellent in her role and proves why she should act more.

Score: 5 out of 10
