The director seems at a loss as to how he should handle the material. It obviously calls for a visceral disturbing tone of the sort that was being pioneered in the US by Rosemary's Baby and The Exorcist, but instead goes for the stately British gothic of the Hammer Horrors. An example of how being beholden to Hammer's success limited the advancement of the British horror, and would ultimately put an end to Hammer itself. That's not to say the film is without merit; it has good acting, and sometimes manages some creepy scenes and a sense of dread. The ending is laughable, though.
Pamela Franklin is beyond beautiful in this one.
This is great until the ending. It is absolutely silly and undermines a fairly creepy and cool ghost film.
