When her husband John has a heart attack while out in a rowboat on the lake, Louise Haloran throws his body overboard and later tells the family that he has left on an urgent business trip. Her main concern is that she can only inherit a part of the family fortune if if her husband is alive. The Halorans are a strange family, still grieving over the death of the youngest daughter Kathleen who drowned in a pond when she was just a child. They hold an annual ceremony of remembrance every year on the anniversary of her death. This year however, someone is wielding an ax intent on murder.

This cheap b&w horror movie is notable for being Francis Ford Coppola's mainstream debut (he worked on a few adult films). Produced by the great Roger Corman, this was filmed in Ireland and feels inspired both by "Psycho" and haunted house movies like "The Innocents" and "The Haunting." The acting is pretty bad, as is the script, but there are some good shots and creepy moments. The only actor I recognized was Patrick Magee, who would later be in "A Clockwork Orange." Interesting as the humble beginnings of the future director of "The Godfather" and "Apocalypse Now."
