A forgotten gem from the legendary Hammer Studios, available for the first time on home video in the UK, this sinister classic spins a gruesome where the unhappy families. It is three weeks before the Ashby siblings Simon (Oliver Reed), a brutish alcoholic, and Eleanor (Jannette Scott), a nervous wreck, are to come into their late parents' inheritance. While Simon plans to have his sister certified insane and locked away, Ellen it keeps seeing the lurking figure of their long-dead brother Tony around the estate. Who or what is this apparition, and as he threatened to reveal skeletons in the closet (and elsewhere)?
