This little film is a ghost story about a modern English farm haunted by the ghost of its former owner. It is rumoured that he murdered four children, but it is slowly revealed that they were child labourers who died in various accidents exacerbated by his carelessness.
Four children are exploring the farm when they come upon his desolate grave, then they get parts of the story out of the old caretaker. An ancient photograph reveals that the long-ago dead children looked strangely like the four present-day ones. Ah, but will they come to harm or not?
This film was missing for the longest time, then it appeared on youtube a few months ago (watch?v=YLAfDrFUBkA). As a farm safety film, it bears comparison with Apaches (1977). Never Rest has a more coherent plot, but Apaches is much more frightening. Since both are on youtube, it's nice to compare them
