    Pretty sure it was a UK film. Made 60s or early 70s. Set in a lunatic asylum in 1900s. Only thing I do remember is they have a sort of cupboard chair when they cut people's hair. Think they take it over at the end. The person who was in charge is put in one of those cupboard chairs and has his hair cut?

    I've never seen it, so I'm not sure. It sounds like it could be Bedlam starring Boris Karloff from the 1940's.

    Definitely right, Jaycad



    I remember the scene Tozzer describes. I think the film was made in India, although supposed to be set in the U.K.

    It was, and I think it helped give the film it's strange and rather unique 'feel'.

    Yes, we saw a stage production of The Turn Of The Screw a few years back. They'd relocated the story to colonial India and I think had turned the character of Mrs. Gross into an ayah. It worked quite well - the sultry heat adding another dynamic to the brooding and oppressive atmosphere of the play.

    Ghost Story has a sort of footnote in cinema history as the only known film featuring the actor on whom Withnail (from Withnail and I) was based. No idea who in the cast he is, though.
