I too am among the somewhat puzzling number of people who mistakenly bought either this compilation, or indeed the individual instalments, believing that I was getting a 'Paramormal Activity' product.

And after watching 'When The Wind Blows', I was certainly not disappointed.

Plot synopses and story settings should be familiar to anyone who has reached my review - but it is worth noting how effective the story dynamic is in pitting two loveable but painfully… Read more
