Footsteps Outside the Cottage

The young couple, Frank and Susan, newly arrived in the Somerset village of Thrussock, relax after dinner. The camera, however, describes a point-of-view shot from the perspective of a nameless intruder who walks around the cottage, peering into windows.

Great work here from The Unseen, whose simple synth tones and LFO modulations are so typical of the era. I remember this scene with at least as much clarity as Septic, who claims that it was shot using a crude “day for night” filter. I cannot agree. My memory is that Grundig took full advantage of the smudgy dusk, making great use of available light.
