Having a definite interest in the occult, and having been disappointed in earlier attempts to portray this genre ("GHOST" excepted), I watched this mainly because I had heard of the events of 1917 it re-enacts, and believed this to be a largely documentary-oriented film which would tell me the full story. Wow! I was soon enlightened! I have rarely seen a film wholly lacking (for me) any element I would rather have missed. Acting, filming, special effects (how wonderful to see them UNDER-stated for a change) and screenplay were brought together by a director of very fine judgement, and a remarkable score framed the whole to perfection. The humourous element, also, was neither too heavy nor too slight as to be noticed. This is the best film I have seen since "Love Story", in the way it lacked any hint of either obscure subtlety, blatant obviousness or that worn-out device - "Dramatic Effect". It was, in a word: "Romantic". Hooray! Recommended for all kids and their grand-children.
