Barry Wilding arrives in London to take over his uncle's estate, an old manor called the Hawk's Nest. When he arrives at the stately mansion, he discovers that a noted scientist and his beautiful daughter Julie are living there. His life is threatened and he is forcibly removed from the property with no explanation. After warnings to leave England and encounters with American gangsters, Barry is driven to seek out the truth. He soon learns that all the strange events may have something to do with a hidden treasure at Hawk's Nest and a government conspiracy, but that is just the beginning.

Rating 4.0 Suspend your belief and this is great fun Movie Lover: from Glen Head, NY US -- August, 9, 2004

What is going on in and around an English manor house is a giant messy knot. If you think about it too much the whole thing will fall limply at your feet...which is why you should simply just take this film on its own terms and simply enjoy it.
This is genuinely a movie that requires you to leave your brain at the door. Sure for a while it all makes perfect sense, then as complication piles on complication and plot line tangles with plot line you have to wonder if there was a fire sale at the plot department. There is simply too much that doesn't fit together for you ever to be able to figure out whats really going on, so get a bowl of popcorn, some soda, turn off the lights and enjoy a very silly mystery.


Rating 4.0 Atmospheric B Movie Movie Lover: from Trumbull, CT US -- June, 14, 2004

Something screwy is going on here. This film demands too much "suspension of disbelief", if you ask me (and golly; you didn't!). HOUSE OF SECRETS represents a typical mid-1930's, B-Team mystery that gets a tad too convoluted for its own good. Still, it's fun watch the story meander towards a fairly interesting climax in spite of the script. The film is well-paced and audio/video quality is rather good.
