In the U.S., this movie was released as "Night of the Ghoul" and "The Thing in the Attic". Contrary to belief in some areas, this movie is not in the public domain: the rights holder is still Tyburn Film Productions.
Daphne Welles Hunter:
I'm sorry, I shouldn't be so inquisitive. It must be very painful for you to talk about it.
Dr. Lawrence: The pain is there, whether I talk about it or not.
At c. 27 minutes we see Peter Cushing tuning his violin but he is not playing the open strings that we hear. Furthermore, later shots of his violin playing are extremely badly mimed.
There is a third version of this film, aside from the full uncut version and the UK cut theatrical version. In 2002, Brentwood Home video released the film under the title "Night of the Ghoul" in the U.S.A. with an NTSC run time of 80 minutes 26 seconds. Brentwood substituted the original title sequence with a new video generated title sequence removing around a minute of footage at this point. The ending is less succinct and overall the film is cut by a full 13 minutes compared to the full uncut 93 minute version, and is 7 minutes less than the 87 minute UK theatrical cut version. All run times quoted are NTSC/theatrical run times to allow for direct comparison.
