I'm trying to remember the name of a film which probably came out in the late '70s/early '80s. It was made in Australia and concerns an electronics genius who lives in a rundown, remote seaside house. He has a bad car accident, is paralysed and has to move into a modern apartment in the city. He is allocated a nurse to look after him. Strange things start happening in the apartment such as blood coming up through the plug-hole in the kitchen sink. Nurse starts to suspect that something is going on in the apartment above (though I don't think she or hero ever see the blood as it happens at dead of night). Nurse goes up to investigate and somehow gains access to empty apartment. She looks round but fails to notice dead woman's body in the shower. Later she shares the lift going down with fellow from the apartment above and sees woman's head in carrier bag fellow is carrying. She screams and that is the last we ever see of her. I can't remember how the film ends or any of the actors except that it was made at a time when Ray Barrett was making lots of films in Australia but I don't think he was in this one. The whole film is very moody with very little dialogue and nothing ever seems to be explained. I think the hero continues to design things from his bed and maybe engineers the detection of the murder(s).

Does it ring any bells?
