Audiences scream their way to the harrowing climax of this bloody mystery set in modern London. When Emma Lorrison is called away from her rooming house by a fake telegram, her daughter Ann is left to rent the garret where a horrible murder took place three years before. Despite the housekeeper's fears, Ann rents it to a young artist Peter Blake, who refuses to believe there's anything fearful about the room. When another roomer becomes romantically interested in Peter, Ann realizes she too is in love with him but suspects he's concealing something. Terror and suspense grow as an incomplete painting hidden in the garret quite possibly holds the identity of the mad killer; a killer who may be still in the house! Ann realizes she was the intended earlier victim and is still being stalked!
