In ’The Treasure of Abbot Thomas’ (1974) cynical Reverend Somerton (Michael Bryant) is completely close-minded when it comes to paranormal activity. But his steadfast beliefs falter when his search for the treasure of alchemist Abbot Thomas (John Herrington) unleashes a terrifying spectre. In ’The Signalman’ (1976), based on the story by Charles Dickens, Denholm Elliott stars as a troubled railway signalman who has witnessed some unsettling sights and sounds along his stretch of track.
