Goofs

The second time that Father Dowling and Sister Stephanie visit the Van Horn house together (just before Father Prestwick turns up), they park their car directly outside the house. A shot later that evening from the same camera angle shows no car present, even though no-one has left the house to move the car. See more »

Father Dowling and Sister Steve want to help Carol a lady that lives in a big historical house who has been traumatized by the death of her father.

She misses her father and starts seeing his apparition in the house. He talks to her and tells her what to do...

Carol see a psychiatrist Dr. Latimer who wants her to re-live everything that happened in the house that scared her. He knows she is so scared it might just push her over the edge. He tells her it is better to remember.

During the story Father Dowling and Sister Steve go to the house to stay overnight with Carol there. Things are starting to look suspicious.

Later it is revealed that the house is very historical and a gangster also lived there a long time ago. He buried something in the house.

Father Dowling feels there are people that want to buy the house and get Carol out with any means they can.
