Time Out says

In this stage-bound yet surprisingly involving Gothic melodrama, Lupino plays a housekeeper who murders her ex-actress employer (Elsom) in order to prevent her two mentally disturbed sisters (Lanchester and Barrett) from being sent to an asylum. The blend of eccentricity and (genteel) Grand Guignol works well, though the events portrayed are nothing like as shocking as they must have seemed at the time of the film's original release. Remade in 1968 as The Mad Room.
