Snoozefest around woman's persistent attacks by a one-armed man which those around her dismiss simply as her imagination. It's actually part of an elaborate murder plot that makes a lot of assumptions and would have zero chance of success. Of interest only to see how much more patronizing Bates can be to his wife as the film progresses.

A watchable murder thriller that gets by with a decent set of performances and good direction. It won't change the world, but it's far from terrible.

A Hammer horror with a contemporary setting, but its nowhere near as edgy than the period pieces we are used to seeing pre-1970's - but with Peter Cushing and Joan Collins in the cast list it has a presence at least.

The same title as the DeForest "It seemed as if my brain was handcuffed" Kelley vehicle but a very different beast; this is a late-period Hammer psychodrama with excellent acting (particularly Judy Geeson as Peggy, the mentally fragile girl who keeps getting attacked by a bounder in leather gloves - I suppose, as it's the early '70s, Alvin Stardust could be a suspect), some predictable yet satisfying twists in the tale, and a quite brilliantly eerie musical score by John McCabe.

The synopsis above is for a Fear Factory music video DVD! As far as I know Jimmy Sangster didn't direct that one though. The Hammer film is a solid psychological-thriller with a decent twist the kind of which has been used replicated quite frequently in recent years. The cast was strong and the plot was better than some of the recent Hammer productions.

Late, but top quality Hammer suspense thriller--A decent thriller with plenty of twists!!

Good Hammer production of a woman seemingly being terrorized by a one armed man, but people dismiss it as a vivid imagination. That is until there is blood on the floor and she wont explain how it got there.

Fear in the Night was a slow-starting almost paint-by-numbers Hammer film from the 70s. Its got that patented look that Hammer was famous for and hell, Peter Cushing even showed up for a few scenes in a pivotal role. The problem is that Fear in the Night was so dry and sparse that by the time they got to the actual action it was a case of too little, too late. It wasn't a horrible movie, but having to look at Judy Geeson's face and all the stupid looks it made for an hour while you waited for something to happen was pretty damn tortuous. Not Hammer's finest moment but not their worst either.

Most of these un-popular DVD's in the Horror section are just really old and nobody has watched them, its hard not to give them not interested!
