Still grieving over the accidental death of their daughter, Christine, John and Laura Baxter head to Venice, Italy, where John's been commissioned to restore a church. There Laura meets two sisters who claim to be in touch with the spirit of the Baxters' daughter. Laura takes them seriously, but John scoffs until he himself catches a glimpse of what looks like Christine running through the streets of Venice.

One of the great horror masterpieces, working not with fright, which is easy, but with dread, grief and apprehension. Few films so successfully put us inside the mind of a man who is trying to reason his way free from mounting terror - Roger Ebert
