As Wikipedia describes the plot: “Some teenagers – two American exchange students and a Danish girl – visit an old English castle. They discover a ghost.”

While that description fails to convey that The Headless Ghost is a comedy/sort-of-horror film, cheaply and quickly made to double-bill with Horrors of the Black Museum, it does manage to capture the ho-hum reality of how vacant and banal the whole thing is.

It’s neither laughably bad nor laughably funny. I think as a child I might have been amused by the ghosts stepping out of the paintings, but really, there is nothing to recommend here. Really. At all.
