Summary
A grieving widow falls victim to the machinations of a so-called spiritualist, who knows more than he should about her marriage and the death of her husband. He offers to bring peace by contacting the dead man's restless spirit, but she and her sister begin to suspect their medium of paranormal quackery-or worse. An interesting pastiche of horror and noir, with the mystery and moral ambiguities nicely underscored by spooky shadows and supernatural shadings. Bari accepted the part of the grief-stricken woman after its original recipient, Carole Landis, took her own life
