Play: Candles At Nine


A little long-winded, but overall this is a pretty enjoyable, sometimes very creepy British murder mystery. Much of the action is centered around a spooky old house where a singer is forced to spend the night in order to claim her inheritance. Lots of suspicious characters are lurking about. The highlight of the film is Lehman, who turns in one of the best-ever performances as a sinister housekeeper. British singing star Matthew's last starring role. Plays like a horror film in places. This video was transferred from a 16mm print.

worth a watch -- atmospheric but not too heavy.
