Fear in the Night (1972)
95 min.
Directed by Jimmy Sangster.
With Peter Cushing, Judy Geeson, Joan Collins, Ralph Bates, John Bown, James Cossins.
Generally underrated thriller from Hammer.

After being attacked by a one-armed man and already recovering from a previous nervous breakdown, Peggy Heller (Geeson) accompanies husband Bates to his 'job' at a countryside boys' school run by headmaster Cushing and wife Collins.

Will her new life provide the recovery she needs...or has the one-armed assailant followed her?

Excellent performances from each of the four primary cast members, good secluded schoolhouse atmospherics from Hammer, packs some nice plot surprises.

Also known as Honeymoon of Fear.
