The Comeback (also known as The Day the Screaming Stopped) is a 1978 British horror film directed by Pete Walker.[1]


A once successful American singer, Nick Cooper (Jack Jones), relocates to a country manor in England, leaving L.A. and a failed marriage behind him, to begin work on his career comeback. But instead, he finds himself embroiled in a mystery involving the murder of his ex-wife. His nights are haunted by strange noises. His ex-wife's ghost appears and tries to provide clues to her death. Is he going crazy or is something horrifyingly real going on? Harsh reality sets in as the mystery killer begins to emerge from the shadows.
