Plot Synopsis

Someone at the Door

Someone at the Door, was a remake of a 1935 thriller, itself based on a successful stage play. A newsman and his sister inherit an apparently haunted house and invent a story of a killing at the house but it comes true. Better than most of Exclusive’s output during this period, it remains of interest chiefly for its title sequence, in which the cast pass through a mansion door, which is subsequently removed by two stage hands who reveal it to be a piece of scenery in a field, behind which the crew are lurking.
