No-one will be there. In the night. In the dark.

Despite warnings about its evil reputation, the parapsychologist Dr Montague decides to conduct an experiment to investigate the supposedly supernatural occurrences in a remote mansion.  With him are Eleanor and Theodora, both of whom have had their own encounters with the supernatural.
