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.
The ghostly hand is a right hand throughout the film but when it appears to kill Mrs Luke it is suddenly a left hand.
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.
