5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Film Adaptation Of The Dickens Ghost Story!, 20 May 2004
This review is from: The Signalman [1976] [DVD] (DVD)
I have been a big fan of Charles Dickens for quite number of years now, and i have read most of his novels. Therefore i was very happy to discover that one of his best mystery/thriller stories, 'The Signalman' was availble on DVD.
This chilling tale is about a signalman (of course) who lives all by himself in a remote and very isolated signal box. There he begins to see a spectre, which seems to be telling something, warning him of a terrible accident. I won't say much more because i don't want to spoil this wonderful, bone-chilling film for you.
Although there are really only two roles in this film, that of the signalman, and that of the man who comes to see him (the narrator in the book), it doesn't seem to matter and they both bring the roles to life brilliantly.
One of the great things about the book is the way that tension is built up at just the right time, and then somthing scary happens such as the spectre appearing, and this is conveyed brilliantly in this film adaptation
Overall, a supurb re-telling of the classic Charles Dickens novel, which will give you cold shivers run up your spine. If you have read then book then watch this film, if you have seen this film then read the book.
Highly recommended.
