England, 1795: the young Catherine has just married Charles Fengriffen and moves into his castle. She becomes the victim of an old curse that lays on the family. On her wedding night she is raped by a ghost and gets pregnant.
The film takes place in 1795.
Ghosts galore. Headless horsemen, horseless headsmen, everything.
A younger stunt double takes over the fall midway down at approximately 36:00. As she "lands" at the bottom of the stairs she appears to be crawling into position before she comes to a full stop. Her resting position changes between shots. First her skirts are up with petticoats showing. In the next shot her legs have moved and her skirts are now discreetly at her ankles. No character touched her in between.
US version is missing two scenes from the original British release: Peter Cushing's discovery of an eyeless corpse and Ian Ogilvy's smashing the skeleton against a gravestone.
