Hi

Hope someone out there can help.When i was a child i wasn't very good at sleeping after watching a scary film but that still didn't put me off.When i got older i watched all the films that had given me sleepless night and found most of them funny and not scary at all.There is just one film left that still sticks in my mind and sometimes makes me nervous , i would love to watch it at put my silly fear to bed but i do not know the name of the film.
i do not know who was in it, the director or even the country of origin it would have been about 1970 when i watched it on television but i do not know how old the film was then.A rough plot.
A father dies and is berried in his best suit which has a winning raffle ticket in the pocket. Son digs up father to get ticket out of his dads pocket as the moon shines down and his face turns into a skeleton and he then leaves his family and lives alone in a large house with no mirrors.Sorry it not much to go on but hopefully
