Is this part of a Hammer Horror series? Or another similar British horror series?

I thought it was the Hammer House of Horror series, but I can't see anything that relates to what I'm looking for.

The plot is:

A family own a house.

The wife keeps seeing a young boy riding in the garden on a tricycle from the kitchen window.

She starts seeing a man walking around her house with a knife.

Later in the movie, she see's a whole family being stabbed in front of her, and she passes out.

She then wakes up in hospital.

While she's in hospital, their house has been sold. The husband gets in the car leaving their old house.  Suddenly a man appears from the back seat of the car and cuts the husbands throat

On the floor of the car is a newspaper.  On the front page is a picture of an escaped lunatic.

What the wife was seeing, was the future murder of the next family that have just bought their house.

This all I can remember.  I've tried doing a Google search, but not having any luck.

Thank you so much - I've just watched this!  I forgot about the other short stories in this movie.  I watched this over 25 years ago - it's funny how you suddenly remember an old horror film from long ago. There was a Hammer Horror film that I also remembered - The House That Bled to Death.  I saw this as a kid, remembering the old couple in the beginning - the old man murdering his wife, and the central heating pipes breaking, spraying blood at a children's birthday party. Thanks again.
