Our Score
The first and last production from Christopher Lee's own company, Charlemagne, is a silly, supernatural variant on Village of the Damned. The brooding atmosphere of John Blackburn's pre-Exorcist possession novel goes awry under horror stalwart Peter Sasdy's confusing direction, leading to a complete absence of menace or suspense. Despite Lee making great claims for the innate intelligence of his misunderstood "masterpiece", it's a patchy and lacklustre affair with little to commend above a memorable turn by Diana Dors.


A detective investigates a series of inexplicable deaths linked to a mysterious orphanage. Supernatural thriller, starring Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee.
