A haunted sculptor’s studio is tied to the strange disappearance of the wife of the previous occupant (also a sculptor).

This minor thriller functions as both a horror movie and a mystery, and I suspect that an alert horror movie fan will be able to figure out the answer to the central question of the mystery well before the ending is reached. Nonetheless, the horror elements are quite marked, and the movie is enhanced by some strong acting from all concerned, as well as some very nice camerawork and direction. The movie is somewhat obscure nowadays, but it is worth catching.
