A Birtish village, the early 1800's, when Napoleon tried to conquer all of Europe: Several Englishmen favoured their own well-being over the well-being of their nation, including the local squire Sedgefield (Alan Lawrance), who works in the French's employ and has recruited short-on-money soldier George Heeningham (Andrew Laurence) as his chief stool-pigeon, mainly because he is best pals with Jack Wraydon (Bruce Seton), Captain in the British army, and in love with his sister Rose (Pearl Cameron). But George wants out ...

Sedgefield has a meeting with his own employer, the Chief (Tod Slaughter), who turns out to be the mad-as-a-atter uncle of captain Jack who mainly wants his revenge on his family, and has thus signed up with the French. When he's not working for them though, he relishes in killing young women.

Captain Jack is somehow tricked into challenging another man to a duel, something that is punishable by death for the Captain of the British army, and suddenly he finds himself on the run, and his situation is not made any better by the fact that he's blamed for all the murders committed by the Chief. The only man he can trust nor is George, but how far can you trust a man who was once a spy for the French?

Eventually, Captain Jack manages to uncover the operations of his mad uncle and have him killed by his own deathtrap after the Chief has killed Sedgefield (who much too late saw his error), and with the help of George, Jack is cleared of all accusations ...

 

One of these bad films you can't help but somehow like anyhow: Made on the cheap, The Curse of the Wraydons is quite obviously based on a play, the stagey directorial effort does little to disguise that, and thus the whole thing is a bit dialogue-heavy - which is not a good thing especially since the whole cast is below average, except for Tod Slaughter, who takes his hamming-it-up a bit too far and at times comes off like a cartoon character. Add to this a plotline that is a tad too convoluted for its own good and doesn't always make perfect sense, and you've got ... well, a less than perfect movie of course - a bad one actually -, but good (unintentional) fun nevertheless.
