Weak episode in a normally reliable series
20 February 2013 | by Leofwine_dracaSee all my reviews

VISITOR FROM THE GRAVE is a somewhat lacklustre addition to the HAMMER HOUSE OF HORROR television series, made weaker by its ludicrous twist ending which makes fun of almost everything that's come before. Director Peter Sasdy (of COUNTESS Dracula fame) is able to inject some much-needed atmosphere into his low budget production, but that's the only thing of interest here.

In what amounts to little more than a stagy, one-room three-hander, Kathryn Leigh Scott plays a woman who fights off a would-be rapist only to find herself haunted by the vengeful man's spirit. There's a typically stiff-upper-lip performance from Simon MacCorkindale as her husband and a slightly extraneous turn from BLAKE'S 7 honcho Gareth Thomas as a copper, and that's about it. The story is predictable, the chills lukewarm and the ending just stupid.
