Plot Synopsis

The Snorkel

The Snorkel (1958) took Hammer away from horror and into the area of the adult thriller. Mandy Miller plays the teenage child who believes that her stepfather (Peter Van Eyck) killed her mother and passed it off as suicide as well as murdering her father before that, making ingenious use of a piece of breathing apparatus, the snorkel. Her persistence in suspecting the stepfather soon places her own life in danger. An initially promising thriller that ultimately lacks the required skill to bring it off.
