Review

A star rating of 4 out of 5.

One of the best British second features ever made, this tense thriller hooks the viewer from the beginning, then springs surprises right through until the very end. In one of his least-known but most complex roles, Peter Cushing plays the truculent bank manager whose life is changed when he is visited by "insurance investigator" André Morell. Director Quentin Lawrence, whose TV credits include Coronation Street and The Avengers, controls the suspense with such skill that it's a surprise his movie career didn't take off.
