Description


Modern day lovers are manipulated by the ghosts of the doomed previous inhabitants of an isolated Welsh cottage. As history repeats itself, they must fight to avoid meeting the same tragic fate. Carole takes her dying father back to his home village in the mountains of mid Wales, for a last holiday. The old man is haunted by the ghost of Ifan, a puritanical sea captain, a malignant force. Following her father's death, Carole uses her inheritance to buy a remote traditional cottage outside the village, which was home to Ifan. The cottage has a bad history; the previous owner, Mr. Phillips killed himself there. Carole's boyfriend Peter is shocked by the state of the cottage. During their first night at the cottage, Carole and Peter are possessed by the ghosts of the former inhabitants – the violent Ifan and his wife Mari, the local white witch. Peter returns to London and under Ifan's malignant influence and his life goes to hell. Carole stays at the cottage and under Mari's influence seduces a local boy Geraint as Mari had seduced a young lad when Ifan was away at sea. History repeats itself as Peter plots the death of his unfaithful partner as Ifan and Mr. Phillips had done in the past. Carole realises that she is being haunted and sets about solving the mystery of the cottage. But will she be able to avert history repeating itself once more? If you can't shake off your ghosts, you're dead too…
