Children's 1976 59 mins

Director: James Hill



This atmospheric thriller from the Children's Film Foundation is set around an ornate gloomy old mansion house. It must surely have sent shivers down the spines of 1970s kids and remains eerily effective today. James Hill's direction maintains the tension, and an impressive sense of period, as the narrative twists and turns before a surprising and ingenious resolution.
