Joey Fane is coming back from two years in an institution, he is only ten years old and full of hatred for his supposedly loving nanny. He was sent away due to believed part in his sister’s death and because he refuses to eat or sleep. At first he seems extremely paranoid why would this mild mannered, devoted lady (play by the legendary Bette Davis) want to harm anybody?
But odd things are happening around the house and surely the balme can’t lie entirely at the feet of a ten year old?
This is another film from my beloved silver screen from 1965 and by the amazing Hammer Studios, a company that although went bust a number of years ago has since been bought by a European company who plan to release more films.
There was great acting here throughout particularly by William Dix who played the young boy. I would reccommend this to anyone who likes horror, but doesn’t care for bloodshed or over complication.
