And Soon the Darkness (1970)
It’s an effective, suspenseful thriller by writers Brian Clemens (The Avengers) and Terry Nation (Dr Who) that’s free of unnecessary gimmicks. It is unusual, though, in that it takes place entirely in daylight, using the backdrop of an idyllic Gallic retreat as contrast to murky village happenings.
I perhaps wouldn't urge anyone to rush out and buy it without already being a fan of the talent involved, but if it's on your TV some evening then, yes, it’s certainly worth setting time aside to watch.
