David Ash , an American professor, has entered into the field of parapsychology and has spent a majority of his life disproving the existence of ghosts... He was motivated by the untimely death of his twin sister, Juliet, for which he blames himself.. In 1928, he receives an invitation from the Mariell family to investigate the alleged hauntings at their home, Edbrook House. At the train station, he is met and is immediately smitten by the beautiful Christina Mariell , who informs him that she and her brothers actually hired him to try to calm the fears of their ageing nanny..Christina believes that due to her declining mental health since their mother's death, Nanny Tess has convinced herself that Mrs. Mariell's ghost returns every evening to haunt Edbrook House..As David begins his investigations, he becomes aware of a presence in the house which goes against everything he believes.. This strengthens his determination to expose the paranormal activities as nothing more than a hoax perpetrated by younger brother Simon .. His initial ideas regarding the afterlife are shaken after increasingly vivid visions of his dead sister Juliet, freely prowling the halls and grounds of Edbrook. Unable to sleep from the strange nightly disturbance, David begins to hallucinate, causing him to start questioning the state of his own sanity and to seek the aid of Dr. Doyle , the local psychiatrist..Further complicating the investigation is Christina's continuous flirtation with David, a distraction he gladly welcomes. However, older brother Robert is adamantly against their friendship, and is revealed as having an incestuous relationship with Christina. When David decides to finally leave Edbrook, he asks Christina to come away with him. Although she refuses, they engage in a passionate kiss and end up in bed together. In the morning when David wakes, the wind is gusting through the house, which is now cloaked in black drapes and littered with fallen leaves. He searches for Christina but instead sees his twin sister's ghost, who leads David to a cemetery. Juliet calls his attention to a specific tombstone which states that Robert, Christina and Simon Mariell all died in a fire at Edbrook in 1923..Released 27 October 1995 (UK)...
