A top notch Hammer thriller.

Susan Strasberg stars as a young woman who has been paralyzed from the waist down. She comes to visit her father who has mysteriously disappeared.

Ann Todd is Jane Appleby who tells Penny (Strasberg) that her father has left on a trip. Soon after Penny starts seeing her fathers dead body everywhere and slowly comes to believe that she is losing her mind.

Ronald Lewis is Robert, the chauffeur that says he will try and help Penny find the truth. Christopher Lee is Dr. Gerrard, and he gives a very understated performance. There is a very good plot twist I will not reveal to those that haven't seen this little gem.

The stark black and white photography is beautiful and so is the direction from Seth Holt. Mill Creek has released a great print of this film and it is included on their "Hammer Horror Collection" DVD of five films.

This set is priced to sell through and I cannot recommend it enough to any Hammer horror fan.
