Peggy Hellet(Geeson) is a young woman who has just become married to Robert Heller(Bates). They are going to relocate from London to a boys boarding school where Robert works. Peggy is attacked at her flat the night before they are going. Someone breaks into her place and tries to strangle her. The person has a fake arm. She wakes up in her flat and when she tells her landlady, she doesn't believe her.
Peggy has had mental problems and Robert thinks that she has been imagining it all. She insists that she was attacked. They go down to the boys school and Robert shows her around. He tells her that the headmaster is Michael Carmichael(Cushing) and his wife is Molly(Collins). They settle in. They run into Molly who seems a little odd.

Robert has to leave for a work errand and Peggy is alone in the cottage. She decides to wander through the school when she hears voices of a class going on. She goes into one of the classrooms and discovers that there is no class, but it is a recording. The headmaster Carmichael is there and he talks to her. She is a little rattled, but he seems nice. Things take a sinister turn when Peggy thinks that Carmichael is after her and she grabs a shotgun and shoots at him. Robert arrives back at the cottage and a twisted plot unfurls. Robert and Molly are lovers. They are behind the attacks on Peggy and they were trying to drive her mad. They want to get rid of Molly's husband and they thought that if Peggy was spooked, she would shoot him. The school has been closed for years and Robert has been looking after Carmichael because he has mental problems since there was a fire in the school years ago and he got burned.Carmichael knows what they are up to and wants revenge. In the end, Peggy is taken prisoner by the two of them and she and Carmichel get rid of the two lovers. Robert ends up hanging from a tree in front of the school. Peggy leaves to start her life again... An entertaining movie which I enjoyed. It is worth a watch if you like Hammer horror! I will give it a 6/10.

Silent Warnings Movie Review 313

Silent Warnings is a 2003 horror movie directed by Christian McIntire and starring Stephen Baldwin, Billy Zane and A.J. Buckley.

Joe Vossimer(Baldwin) is a strange guy who lives alone in a house surrounded by corn fields. He has a gun and he is waiting for something or someone who is tormenting him. He videos his thoughts and it is obvious that he thinks that something or someone is out to get him. He hears something and chases after it and he is gone. Cut to Layne Vossimer, his nephew. He has just heard that Joe died and he has inherited his house. He wonders what happened to his uncle Joe. He and a his girlfriend, Macy (Callie De Fabry) and pals Stephen, Maurice, Iris and Katrina go to the house to clean it up so Layne can sell it.Layne is a friend of the local Sheriff Bill Willingham(Zane) and he talks to him about his uncle.

They are at the house overnight when they find a strange crop circle in the corn. They think that it is local kids just messing with them and they don't take it seriously. Layne finds videos of Joe talking about aliens in the corn and he wonders was his uncle losing his mind. He goes to the Sheriff but he can't believe that there are aliens around. There are more circles and people begin to disappear. The Sheriff comes out to the house and he gets attacked by something in the corn. It is clear that there are aliens and they are in the corn. They all run for the house and Layne figures out that electricity can kill them. The Sheriff blows up the house with the aliens in it and Layne, Macy and Katrina escape. They are driving along when they hear news on the radio that there are strange creatures attacking people. It is obvious that the aliens have not been destroyed. A fun movie with a good cast that is worth a watch if you enjoy cheap horror with a dash of aliens thrown in. I will give it a 5/10.
