It all started 2 years ago, when Frank (Christopher Cazenove) & Sylvia Daly (Carol Lynley) saw an old woman & her daughter in their hotelroom, who, when doublechecking, weren't there at all, couldn't have been there ... yet they both saw them.

Later, Frank sees the same women on a parkbench next to him, but suddenly they have vanished into thin air ...

It's the Dalys' last night in their London flat, the next day it's off to South Africa, & so the flat is totally emptied ... yet when Frank looks into a mirror, he suddenly sees it furnished again, but not with their things, & in the mirror it's daylight, not night. This only lasts a few seconds though.

Later, Silvie finds a presumably empty cupdoard stuffed with things, among them a trunk, & in the trunk the corpse of an old woman. when she calls Frank though, the old woman, the trunk & everythng else that was in the cupboard is gone again ... later the dead woman turns up in the bathtub though. Another illusion ?

Soon the whole flat starts to change, in terms of being furnished again, it's suddenly again daylight outside, & endlessly scenes of Donald Prentice (Bernard Kay) killing his wife Jessica (Vivienne Burgess) are repeated before the Daly's very eyes, & slowly the background story begins to unfold, about how Donald tried to drive his wife into madness by his own irrational & violent behaviour, & soon he had everyone else convinced that she indeed is a bit off the hook, later he even killed her in his bathtub, threw her into river Thames, filed a missing persons complaint with the police, & quite convincingly played the mourning husband ...

& suddenly Frank & Sylvie wake up in their beds, & it's only a few hours away to their flight. Frank tries to explain everything away by having had a mutual nightmare, to calm Sylvie - & himself - down before their journey ... yet still he tries to find out from his neighbours (David Healy, Judy Loe) if something gruesome, unusual, suspicious has recently happened in the house - but not so.

Before they can leave though, Frank & Sylvie meet the future tenants of their flat ... & wouldn't you know it, it's Donald & Jessica Prentice from their mutual nightmare, obviously having haunted them from the future ...


Occasionally clever but mostly boring ghost story, that somehow seems undecided which way to go. On one hand it shows the main characters thrown into events from another time ... but they never seem really menaced by them. On the other hand, a murder mystery seems to unfold before them ... only seems to unfold, because actually everything is bloody obvious from the beginning. So the direction, obviously not interested in creating any kind of atmosphere, goes for the most unsubtle approach thinkable ... continuously have the characters panic & run up & down some corridors ... which does not at all work, since they are never really menaced, after a time it becomes questionable at best why they bother to run at all.

Pity, the wicked twist ending would have deserved a better story attached to it.
