Michael Harris (David Carradine) has been sentenced to life in jail for the
killing of his mistress Rosemary (Stephanie Beacham) in a fit of madness. Now
his life is ending, & he still doesn't know who killed Rosemary (or indeed,
if he killed her in a fit of madness). So he travels back in time as some kind
of spirit & tries to figure out what really has happened ... & the fun
part of it is that he really appears to the characters as a spirit ...
& Michael are spending a romantic vacation in a seaside hotel to do some
fishing & stuff, & Michael desperately tries to persuade her to leave
her husband Clifford (Stephen Greif) to marry him, but she stalls in every way possible, even
pretends she has an affair with local boat owner Gary (Stephen Chase) ...
Michael remains unimpressed.
Then though old Michael appears to her, &
besides scaring the heebie-geebies out of her, he also announces she will be
killed the next day ... which doesn't exactly calm her down. And he persuades
her to stay away from the coast (where she's killed) the next day at any cost.
When she proves to be not too easily convinced, Old Michael appears to young
Michael, who somehow is freaked out even more ...
But that same evening,
Rosemary & Michael (the young one) have a rowe, & Rosemary announces she is
going to leave for London early the next morning & to never see him again
... so at least her life seems to be saved.
Of course, the next day she
doesn't leave for London after all, but heads right to the coast where Michael
is doing some fishing to tell him she loves him ... exactly the coast where she
knows she is going to be killed, But naturally, it is not Michael who kills her
(he is knocked out in a little accident prior to her death - which is why he
couldn't remember anything), but her politician husband Clifford, who can't
cope with her infidelity & the scandal it causes, but has cleverly
obscured all clues leading to him & now has Michael as a cut-out suspect
Helplessly, old Michael has to watch Rosemary being killed, but as a
revenge, he haunts Clifford for the rest of his life ... & because of that,
Clifford soon dies of a heart attack ...
Let's face it, ghost
stories often do not make all that much sense, & come to think of it,
neither do time-travel stories. Why anybody would think a combination of the
two would fare any better is left at anybody's guess. The result here is a rather
feeble whodunnit story with some unnecessary supernatural mumbo-jumbo tagged
on, which just doesn't work in any way. But what's worse, the actual story is
