Plot details

Fanatic (film) movie scenes

An American woman, Patricia Carroll (Powers), arrives in London to get married to her lover Alan Glentower (Kaufmann). Before she gets married, Patricia wants to pay her respects to Mrs. Trefoile (Bankhead), the mother of her deceased fiancé Stephen (who died in an automobile accident several years earlier) at a secluded house on the edge of an English village. Mrs. Trefoile is fanatically religious, and it soon becomes apparent she blames Patricia for her son's death. Patricia reveals to her that she was not actually going to marry Stephen, who, it turns out, committed suicide. With the help of her two married servants Harry (Vaughn) and Anna (Joyce), Mrs. Trefoile holds Patricia captive in an attempt to cleanse Patricia's soul. After Mrs. Trefoile kills Harry, she then tries to kill Patricia. Patricia is rescued by Alan. Anna finds Harry's body, and finally Mrs. Trefoile falls dead with a knife in her back—presumably put there by Anna.
