This stodgy adaptation of "The Haunted and the Haunters" by Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton involves the paranormal investigations of a ghost-chasing psychic expert (Valentine Dyall), who relates a chilling tale to his peers about the resident specters inhabiting a young English couple's recently acquired home -- the very house in which they have met to swap tales of the macabre. It seems that the trio of poltergeists -- a sailor, his wife, and her murdered lover -- are still lurking about, and their ghastly secrets are revealed in a climax more inventive than the rest of the film.
