A film that not even the formidable Gary Lewis can save is a scary thing indeed.
Nothing particularly surprising or exciting happens, and the straightness with which the subject is treated eventually means everything seizes up.
Despite the fact that the scariest thing about this Yorkshire-brewed ghost story are the 70s fashions (avocado kitchen and rum and pep, anyone?), there is something quite charming about the creakiness of it all.
Director Pat Holden delivers a few effective shocks but overcooks the climax.
This British scary movie is preposterous and cheesy, if occasionally oddly enjoyable.
[Draws] upon the effective, low-fi scares of Ghostwatch or The Stone Tapes for well-sustained tension.
Soon gives way to silliness, with the poltergeist fiddling with Sally's Buckeroo and Slinky toys.
Aesthetically authentic and frightening in parts. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem all that different to what has come before it.
