Dir: Sidney Hayers
Starring: Hayley Mills and Simon Ward
The hunt is on for a maniac who leaves a trail of dead after escaping from an asylum
This superb and greatly overlooked psychological thriller features good shots of Yatton station in Somerset, though no trains feature. A little later in the movie the car with Ward and Mills inside pauses at an automated level crossing as a train passes by. The level crossing is Huish (or Hewish), 1 ¾ miles west of Yatton and although we see the train passing, it is only shown through the windscreen thus precluding an exact identity. However, the express is typical of the 1970’s and consists of a ‘BR blue-liveried diesel on blue and grey coaching stock’.
