Harvey is a man possessed of a burning desire to take over his stepbrother's Dorset home. Knowing his stepbrother (Archdale) has a bad heart, Harvey smashes a violin, setting off a fatal heart attack in Archdale. After forcing his own wife and remaining step-brother out of the house, Harvey

begins a descent into madness. He thinks he hears the violin being played and tries to drown out its music by playing the piano. Finally, driven mad by fear, Harvey collapses on the keyboard, felled by the same kind of heart condition that took Archdale's life. Though the script is just a few

cliches strung together, the direction manages to give this tale a good creepy feeling.
