HALLOWE'EN by Leslie Burgess


Email this review


Shades of Rebacca, but lacks the sharp sense of mounting horror, atmosphere, which gave it such poignance. Melodrama, in the English tradition, in story of a rather mk girl who marries a stolid, imperturbable man and returns with him to his Scotch ancestral home, to be faced with the incalculable hostility of the household. There are cumulative scenes of tension, ending in an attempt at murder, and the revelation of hidden and murky emotions, incest and hats. Good enough, rentals as well as sales.
