1972 BBFC Cert. “X”

Fear in the Night

No one believes pretty young newlywed Peggy Heller when she says she has been attacked in her room by a mysterious assailant, a man with an artificial arm; after all, she has just recovered from a nervous breakdown and is still a bit jittery. Her husband, Robert, takes her to their new home in the grounds of the school where he has taken a new job. There, she meets his boss, the headmaster, and is horrified to see that he has a false arm!

This is the last Hammer film for which Jimmy Sangster receives a credit. He later moved to America to continue his writing career there.

Superstar sex symbol Joan Collins’ other stabs at horror include Amicus’s Tales from the Crypt (1972, with Peter Cushing) and Tales that Witness Madness (1973); both films were directed by Freddie Francis.

Judy Geeson had previously been in Herman Cohen’s grisly horror film Berserk! (1967, starring Joan Crawford).
