31 Weird Tales: Eye of the Devil

A beguiling, unjustly forgotten fable with Deborah Kerr and David Niven. Kerr unwisely follows husband Niven back to the ancestral home only to find a chilly welcome from the locals and a terrible fate that Niven is determined to keep. Sharon Tate has an eye catching role as a local waif, watching everything unfold with a dry smile. Shot in beautiful black and white it plays like a fairy tale told round a dying fire.  A excellent companion piece for the original THE WICKER MAN.
