Synopsis

18-year-old Louise is stuck in a run-down boarding school for girls and can't bear the thought of being away from her lover, Matthew, during the half term holiday. So she stays on at school ostensibly to do extra work for her exams. But when Matthew's wife, Veronica, the school's headmistress, finds out about the affair, she is driven over the edge and stabs him.

Veronica gets rid of Louise by sending her off on an errand while she hides Matthew's body. When Louise returns, she is shocked to find all trace of Matthew has gone. According to Veronica, she and Matthew need a little time apart to heal their marriage.

Trapped in the remote school and haunted by nightmares, Louise finds the vast Victorian building a spooky shell without the other pupils. Matthew's voice seems to echo around her head to the point that she is convinced she's going mad. Late one night, Louise is awakened by someone calling up to her from outside her bedroom window. She looks out and sees Matthew waving to her. Scared and excited, Louise rushes out to meet him. But as his arms encircle her she realises her eyes were deceived - with fatal consequences.
