Fear in the Night (Dynasty of Fear) (Honeymoon of Fear) Reviews
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.
Judy Geeson joins her new husband at a boys boarding school that is empty due to holidays, however Judy has recently suffered a breakdown, has possibly been attacked and things are not what they seem at the school. Is this all in her mind?
The first hour or so of this is pretty slow moving stuff, you can see the makers are trying to throw in clues/red herrings and build some tension but it's never quite interesting enough. Basically a 2 hander between Geeson and Ralph Bates with the occasional appearance from Joan Collins and Peter Cushing.
Things take a nice turn in the last 20 minutes or so but it does feel a bit like a padded out Tales of the Unexpected episode and could have done with being a 60 minute TV ep rather than a 90 minute feature to really work.
On a whole ok but could have been better.
