Good but let down by the changed ending,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Secret of Crickley Hall [DVD] (DVD)
I must say I was not sure when I was bought this as I am a big fan of the book and I am sceptical of TV adaptations. For the most part I was pleasantly surprised. It was well cast and the setting was ideal.
The story was as chilling as the book and kept you watching, the children were very well acted which can be unusual for their ages, I really felt for poor Stefan.
Sadly I found the ending a bit of a let down, without posting huge spoilers I will only say that changing it from the original ending was a poor move, it may have made it somewhat happier but it hadn't the hard hit that the book had. That is the only reason it loses a star, if I had not already read the book I would probably not be so critical! However it is a good production and will certainly be watched again
