Margaret (Barbara Steele) is married to Dr. Hichcock (Elio Jotta), but their marriage is an unhappy one, especially since he was paralyzed. He is treated by Dr. Charles Livingston (Peter Baldwin), who claims to use Curare to cure Hichcock - but actually he is Margaret's lover, and the two of them want to get rid of Hichcock ... and eventually, they kill him by overdosing him on Curare. When Hichcock's will is read though, Margaret and Charles have to learn that he left most of his fortune to the church ... so they want to empty his safe before it is publicly opened by the solicitor.

Two problems: 1), the key to the safe is on Hichcock himself, who lies dead in the crypt, happily decomposing, and 2), after they have finally opened the crypt and retriefed the key, Margaret and Charles find the safe empty.

Now if that wasn't bad enough, the two of them are soon to be haunted by what appears to be the ghost of Hichcock, an apparition that even bullets can't stop, their relationship arouses more and more suspicion with the locals, and they are even getting at each other's throat ... until Margaret finds some of the jewellery Hichcock has been keeping in his safe in Charles's briefcase, and she immediately suspects him of foul play and stabs him to death in a fit of frenzy.

Enter Doctor Hichcock, very much alive after all, and not even paralyzed. Upon suspecting Charles and his wife are trying to kill him, he has faked his own death with the help of maid Catherine (Harriet Medin), has personally hidden the jewellery in Charles's briefcase to get Margaret to murder him, and he has dipped the jewel box into Curare, so Margaret will be paralyzed and a perfect culprit for the police, not only for the murder of Charles but also for that of Catherine, whom Hichcock shoots in cold blood before paralyzed Margaret's very eyes. Then he drinks a glass of gin Margaret has poured herself, but fails to notice that he has already driven Margaret to such a state of despair that she was about to poison herself, and now instead of her, the poison in the glass kills him, and wasn't she paralyzed right now, Margaret could have saved his life ...


A sequel to The Horrible Dr. Hichcock only in name, The Ghost manages very well to stand on its own two feet - even if in quality it is inferior to The Horrible Dr. Hichcock - by delivering a moody horror tale that might not be 100 percent believable, but its very well made, features a lot of macabre details, and has an ending that is so full of plottwists (which all make sense by the way) it might just as well make your head spin.

Very enjoyable.
