Mason, his wife, and their beautiful young companion move into an eerie mansion. Odd things begin to happen. It’s soon obvious that a murdered woman’s ghost is taking over Lockwood’s body. Price plays the loving doctor who’s unable to combat the uncanny powers draining her life. One great scene has Lockwood playing the piano, then suddenly breaking into a strange piece she’s never played before. Look for veteran horror star Thesiger in a small but important role. Fine acting, beautiful photography, and a subtle music score make this a very effective ghost tale.
STARRING: James Mason, Dennis Price, Margaret Lockwood, Barbara Mullen, Ernest Thesiger
