Plot summary[edit]

Captain Collier (Patrick Allen) and his band of sailors show up to an English coastal town to investigate reports of “Marsh Phantoms” who ride by night spreading terror to the town. The Captain suspects that the local reverend (Peter Cushing) might be hiding something. Are the phantoms genuine or a cover for illegal smuggling activities?[1]
