GHOST STORY (UK, '74)

Post by Wallace on Wed Feb 26, 2014 1:18 am

nOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH THE WELL-KNOWN MOVIE BASED ON THE pETER sTRAUB NOVEL, this little-known movie has been on my want-to-view list for a long time, because Penelope Keith [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]is in it and the synth soundtrack is by none other than Ron Geesin!
 
Well its a letdown on both fronts: Penelope's role is very small (as is Marianne Faithful's) and the Geesin score is just too silly and actually -unlike Derbyshire's errie electronic score for Legend of Hell House - ruins the impact of the film.
 
Not too bad otherwise.
 
Young man invites two other rather distant friends to the mansion he has inherited. He has vague misgivings the place is haunted but he does not inform the two men. The ghostfinder-dabbling friend leaves because there is nothing of interest for him, but the talkative,cheery,self-sure friend is the one that begins to see figures from the past linking the mansion to a neighbouring country insane asylum.
