Since her Oscar-nominated comeback in 1962’s Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? Bette Davis had embarked on a new career playing aged psychopaths. Seven Arts’ Kenneth Hyman had been the executive producer on Whatever Happened and his company paid Davis’s salary to star in this disturbing adaptation of Evelyn Piper’s novel. Expertly directed by Seth Holt, and featuring outstanding performances by child actors William Dix and Pamela Franklin, Hammer’s final black-and-white film is also one of its best.
