Return to Swan Lake
A psychological ghost story about three young unwed couples, all brilliant liberal-minded graduate students, who meet in an isolated farmhouse on a summer weekend. Three years ago the owner of the house, the grandfather of one of the young men, died in the attic bedroom. The puritanical old man would not have approved of the hedonistic activities and the atheistic discussions that take place under his roof, and neither does his "ghost," which is stirred to a homicidal rage. But is the ghost real, or do the old man's antiquated values merely live on in his grandson's tormented mind?
