    An eerie impression of mystery is maintained pretty well by this picture. It is a story of a thrilling adventure with the secret of a very ghostly place, but no ghosts appear. Some young people were playing hide and seek among the old ruins. One young lady entered a hole in the wall and followed a passage into a room under the castle. She accidentally turned a peculiar spring and a door opened behind her. She entered, and at once it closed upon her, making her a prisoner. Her friends missed her, but she couldn't be found. Lord Beaufort also took up the search. He didn't know the secret, but discovered it, and he, too. was caught. Later, a detective also found it. and freed them. Some of the photographs of the film are very poor, but for the most part it is good and interesting. - The Moving Picture World, November 25, 1911
