“I will be revenged!”
A worst nightmare set up ends in a splatter of great gore SFX before the title has even appeared in episode 11: ‘Visitor from the Grave’. All alone in an isolated holiday home one night, Penny is menaced by a man and quite rightly gives him a barrel of her shotgun for his troubles when he kicks through her French doors and tries to rape her.
When her incredibly unsympathetic husband, Harry, returns he has her scrub the place clean while he buries the body in the woods so they don’t get busted for the murder, or for his unlicensed firearm. But, soon, Penny begins seeing the ghost of the man she killed everywhere and realises that she must find a way to rid herself of his spirit before she loses her mind - whatever the cost. But does a charming fortune teller mean to help or hinder her?
A Poe-esque instalment of ‘Hammer House of Horror’ that makes great use of its setting in an uncomfortable-looking thatched cottage, ‘Visitor from the Grave’ has crazier camerawork and a cooler score than usual and will keep you guessing right up until its incredible ending.
