Review

This very shuddery horror film is a demon offspring from Children of the Damned out of Vincent Price's Witchfinder-General. Some very nasty things happen to Simon Williams, fondly remembered as James Bellamy from Upstairs, Downstairs. And Linda Hayden gives her best screen performance as the leader of the devil children behind some gruesome goings-on in a 17th-century village.
