Captain Collier (Patrick Allen) and his band of sailors show up to an English coastal town to investigate reports of Marsh Phantoms who ride by night spreading terror to the town. The Captain suspects that the local reverend (Peter Cushing) might be hiding something. Are the phantoms genuine or a cover for illegal smuggling activities?

The Blu-ray however is a mixed bag. Positive for sure are the interesting extras. Sadly there is no audio commentary. Also the sound is very good. The picture quality however is not convincing. This an old Universal transfer with visible traces of DNR and electronic tampering. Sharpness and detail are pretty low, colors are OK. There is some digital noise present, especially in the dark scenes. The original English title has been computer generated and embossed into the title card. Because of this the title card features some strange noise which even covers the black blanking areas of the windowboxed credit sequence. After the credit sequence the film's aspect ratio changes to something like 2.00:1 which indicates this transfer was originally made from the US version called Night Creatures.
This is an excellent release, with good bold picture & sound, plus one of the best & most worthwhile "Making of...." documentaries I've ever seen.
Made by Hammer in 1962, the creative team involved weren't Hammer regulars, so it's not over gory.....no more so than the book, anyway. Peter Cushing captures the duality of the central character, though he is perhaps rather slender and bird-like to be convincing as a former pirate captain.
Patrick Allen, Michael Ripper, a youthful Oliver Reed, plus a shipload of familiar character actors such as Derek Francis, Terry Scully, Jack Macgowran and Sidney Bromley, work well together to create a genuinely scary retelling of the story. The special effects - especially the Night Riders - are truly terrifying, and only the lack of genuine shoreline locations lets it down.
Forget George Arliss and Patrick Macgoohan - this is "Dr Syn" as Russell Thorndike would have liked it!
And look out for a very young Kate O'Mara among the extras in the tavern scenes.
