A New England home is terrorized by a series of murders, unbeknownst to the guests that a gruesome secret is hiding in the basement.
Silvia Collatina, who plays Mae Freudstein, also was the hands of Dr. Freudstein.
Mae, time to go home and remember your manners. Now that Bob is staying with us, be sure to treat him like a Freudstein. For other guests are surely destined to drop in.
When Laura Gittleson, the real estate agent, is killed by Dr Freudstein, we see her body lying on the floor with her eyes closed and her mouth open. A few moments later, Freudstein drags her into the basement and her eyes are now open, but her mouth is closed. When she is hanging in the basement near the end of the film, her eyes and mouth are both open.
In the end credits: "no one will ever know whether children are monsters or monsters are children." - Henry James
For its American release, all scenes that featured Norman and Lucy Boyles arguing or showing any signs of marital tension were cut from the film. These edits were done because the distributors of the film felt that the marital tension subplot would alienate viewers and were removed to make the film more of a traditional "Family Moves Into A Haunted House" style movie.
