Loony Grand Guignol, with Aldrich and Davis retreading the territory charted in What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? a couple of years earlier. This time round, Davis is the victim, a woman suspected of murdering her fiancé and driven to the point of insanity by the dead man's repeated hauntings of her in her lonely Gothic mansion. Over the top, of course, and not a lot to it, but it's efficiently directed, beautifully shot (Joseph Biroc), and contains enough scary sequences amid the brooding, tense atmosphere. Splendid performances from Davis and Moorehead, too.
