Fear in the Night

1972

Jimmy Sangster
Director

Production Company

Emotionally fragile Geeson moves with teacher husband Bates to an isolated boarding school. Here she is tormented by a mysterious one-armed man, complete with scary prosthetic hook. No one believes her, though. Is she going crazy, or is something more sinister afoot?

Well-acted but slightly mechanical late Hammer offering. For a similar but superior effort, see the previous year's Let's Scare Jessica to Death.
