George (Donald Pleasence) and Teresa (Francoise Dorleac) are an eccentric couple who have retreated to an island off the northeast coast of Britain, where they live in a large, dank castle. Their isolated existence is disrupted when the island is visited by two gangsters. Roman Polanski's film is bleak but comic - the overall sense of menace occasionally giving way to black humour.

Routine script lifted by Stander and Dorleac ( who sadly passed away soon after).
