It’s loose…Something is killing soldiers on the Lancashire moors – something with razor sharp talons and a brutal strength. Could it be a wild animal, as the police think? Or is it be something far more vicious?
Joyce and Ellie Ballantyne know what it is. They might look like innocent old ladies but they have a guilty secret. Thirty years ago, they made a fateful decision, one they have lived with ever since. But their secret cannot remain buried forever.
Starring acting legends Dame Flora Robson (Wuthering Heights, Black Narcissus) and Beryl Reid (The Killing of Sister George), The Beast in the Cellar is one of the most unusual – and most effective – British horror films of the 1970′s.
