Film details


Horror. Whilst helping to promote a new record, a journalist uncovers some strange information on the mysterious disappearance of two pop singers in 1963. The journalist, Paul Chater, teams up with Cora Berlaine, a pop music expert, to track the singing brothers down. The two missing brothers, Don and Ray Verne, are believed to be living in a large mansion. Cora enters the mansion and remembers in flashes of memory that her own mother had been mixed up with the Vernes and been found dead. The villagers living nearby had killed Don, believing him to be the culprit, but when the real murderer was uncovered Ray had succeeded in blackmailing them into disposing of anyone else unfortunate enough to find themselves near the mansion or its grisly contents.
