James Harrison's family have recently moved into a cottage in a village. A series of accidents are blamed on James, but he discovers them to be the work of the ghost of Thomas Kempe, a sorceror who had formerly lived in the cottage. With the help of the local builder he attempts to exorcise the ghost but it is only laid to rest after he finds its tomb in the vaults of the church.


Fun, though not spectacular.
