Estranged siblings are brought together when he and his new wife moves in with his sister into the family's large estate home. The sister is particularly possessive about the place and not interested in having anyone else around. The wife is more interested in putting some modern and personal touches to the old place and steps on the sister's toes many times with her largesse. Of course, in this situation, despite the size of the house, there is only enough room for one of them.


Marian Seldes shines as the brittle, nerves-on-edge, young wife while Rosemary Murphy oozes both charm and poison as Meg Drayton. There were some minor problems with the audio on this one, but the story and the actors compelled me to listen to the end to find out who would succumb to insanity's clutches and become the next victim of the 'Lady of the Mist'.


"Who will be the lady of the house? Listen to find out." Of course, that sounds like a promo for a reality show but it basically describes the story.


Another Wu banger! Who will get drawn under the water’s currents in The Lady of the Mist? Meg?

I didn't like this one. It seems like a story I've heard many times--stereotypes of the bitter spinster and the naive young wife. The conclusion wasn't a surprise, either.
