Cast a Dark Shadow

1955, UK, directed by Lewis Gilbert

A chilling little British film, starring Bogarde at his most repellently appealing, paired primarily with Margaret Lockwood in a genuinely creepy near-chamber piece. The tone is carefully maintained throughout, though it's box-office failure surely stems from it being just a touch too close to the bone, without the redeeming facet of (obvious) humour, for most audiences.
