  • Four distinguished visitors arrive severally at the castle of the beautiful, widowed Countess Ilona, whom they have not seen for many years. But she has surprises in store for them...

    9.5
    This was actually a two-part story, concluding with the following week's "The Werewolf Reunion". It was the only two-part show in this brief series and it was by far the best. Billie Whitelaw, the real-life wife of scriptwriter Robert Muller, gives a superb performance as the enigmatic Countess, once the highest-paid courtesan in the Austro-Hungarian Empire, until her various rich lovers arranged for her to be married off to a notoriously dissolute nobleman. He proved a brute and a pervert as well as a drunkard and womaniser, and then was reported to have died. But was it an accident, was it a heart attack or was it, as a persistent rumour suggests, lycanthropy that he died of? The men who arranged Ilona's disastrous marriage arrive at her castle "in the remotest corner of that part of my country which the prudent traveller never visits", and find her intent on revenge. TV shows are rarely scary, but this one, without any graphic detail, really was.moreless
