An offbeat, low-key horror melodrama # a macabre combo of Disney and Hammer films, in which a lady, her maid and two kids kidnap and murder unsuspecting males.

Story is set in a country estate populated by mumsy Ursula Howells, nanny Pat Heywood, sonny Howard Trevor and girly Vanessa Howard. It’s a quaint family, mannered in the niceties of civilized living, except that they get their kicks from kidnapping stray males.

The domestic status quo begins to fall apart after kidnapping playboy Michael Bryant, blackmailed into coming to the house on threats of accusing him of the murder of girlfriend Imogen Hassall.

Players acquit themselves admirably. Howells, Heywood and Howard are excellent, Bryant a bit less dynamic than he should have been.
