Enthusiastically spooky

If one doesn't try to compare this with classic Hammer Horror productions (the settings are more like Roger Corman's films of the same era), it can be enjoyed on its own merits. We have Hammer favourites Caroline Munro, Martine Beswicke and Veronica Carlson and Christopher Neame (who could ask for more), in a well- written story with enough dark secrets and sinister scenes to satisfy those with a taste for the macabre.

Director Joshua Kennedy wisely avoided using any CGI effects in the film - almost everything is done in camera with sleight-of-hand, and this is refreshing.

Georgina Dugdale is an attractive and likeable leading lady.

The stirring score by Reber Clark is another great plus for this picture.

Despite the horror theme, gore is at a minimum, and it's kind of refreshing to listen to dialogue that isn't littered with four letter words. (No real problem if it is, but this isn't - in keeping with the period setting.)

The picture was clearly made with love and enthusiasm by all concerned. Kennedy, who also appears as the leading man, has done a great job with a small budget. Someone in Hollywood should back this guy with some big bucks. I know we would see some astonishing work.
