The Ghost (1963)

Italian scream queen Barbara Steele plays Margaret Hitchcock who murders her husband with the help of her lover, Dr. Livingstone.  The celebration is short lived, however, because Margaret begins to be haunted by her dead husband.  It's a story as old as time and done rather decently here.  The plot even has a few surprises along the way which makes it quite enjoyable to watch.  Ms. Steele has a commanding presence throughout the film like she does in Nightmare Castle (1965).  I love her eyes which are extremely expressive.  The rest of the cast is solid as well.
The Ghost is a nice, little ghost story that is worth your time.  Don't expect any huge special effects.  Simply enjoy this old-fashioned exploration of the supernatural which also delves into the dark side of human nature.  This film can be watched on blip.tv.  It is also found in a number of inexpensive horror collections.
RATING: Good.
For more info check out the film's entry in IMDB.
