Product description

Product Description

Young teacher Ben finds an ancient door-knocker in the garden of his new home. According to the local museum curator, it comes from the recently demolished Geap Manor – a sinister old place which seemed to attract… unpleasantness. So begin three stories from the dark history of this crooked house…

Ghastly, strangled whispers haunt the dreams of an Eighteenth Century businessman. A ‘Roaring Twenties’ couple come face to face with their family’s scandalous past and with a terrifying, ghostly bride. And, in the present day, the door knocker itself seems to have unfinished business, leading Ben on a journey back into Geap Manor’s blood-drenched past, and a confrontation with its original owner, the devilish Sir Roger Widdowson…

Ghostly anthology of stories (3 compiled into one omnibus) based on one old house over the centuries, with Mark gatiss as the creepy story teller. Each story builds in tension and become scarier with each one, culminating in some pure horrific moments. If you enjoyed ghost stories for christmas and woman in black then you may enjoy this. The only problem is that one of the publicity shots on the back cover gives the game away with one story and makes the impact less succesful. Very good BBC ghost story.

I dispute other reviews saying that (Crooked House [DVD] [2008]) has been spoilt by being made into a single film rather than its original 3 parts. If you look at the running time it is only a minute shorter (89 rather than the original 90 minutes) yet there is only one lot of credits. Anything edited out is in the "deleted scenes" if you want them, but I couldn't find out what the fuss is about. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Wonderfully atmospheric and very creepy. Mark Gatiss is brilliant as the undead necromancer in disguise who narrates the 3 tales. Brilliant!!

Mark Gatiss is a master of the 'ghost story'. I rate him as good as M.R. James.
Thoroughly enjoyable, creepy and well worth the money.

Let me first make it clear the 3 stars are for the dvd not the actual content - for that I would award 5 stars without hesitation. Written by Mark Gattis (League Of Gentlemen, Doctor Who) Crooked house tells 3 tales about Geap Manor a house seeped in mystery and death. Originally this was a 3 part series but what those idiots who put out the dvd have done have edited it into an ominubus edition and removed some short scenes. To be fair these scenes are included in the deleated scenes special feature but why not release the series as it was shown in 3 parts ?

As I said before the programme content is excellent each story is well told and there are some genuine scares. The stories especially the first one with Philip Jackson (Poirot's Inspector Japp) are very much in the vein of M R James classic ghost stories. There are some nice special features including a "making of" and "what scares you" along with an enjoyable commentary with various cast and crew.

So a slightly dissapointing release of a very enjoyable series. I hope they make another series of Crooked House as there are other tales of Geap Manor waiting to be told.

Originally broadcast on 22-24 December 2008 in three 30 minute episodes, Crooked House has been slightly (but seamlessly) re-edited into a continuous 90 minute story for this BBC DVD release. It was written and co-produced by actor and writer Mark Gatiss who found fame in the 1999 BBC series The League of Gentlemenand who later he presented the widely regarded 2010 BBC series A History of Horror.

The three episodes of Crooked House concern the secrets of fictional Geap Manor, a recently demolished Tudor mansion in Windsor. The link for all three stories is history teacher Ben Morris (Lee Ingleby) who has found an old but rather creepy door knocker in his garden and interested in its origins. The curator of the local museum (Mark Gatiss in superb unsettling form) recognises it immediately as being the old door knocker from Geap Manor. After some cajoling from Ben, he relates three horrible stories.

The first, "The Wainscoting", is set in 1786 and is about the story of Joseph Bloxham, a selfish but sucessful capitalist who buys and improves the Manor, after realising an investment which ruined his fellow speculators. Strange noises are heard behind the newly installed wainscoting. The wood came from the pillars of the gallows known as the 'Tyburn Tree' an infamous eighteen century triangular gallows.

The second story, "Something Old", takes place in 1927, where, at the Manor, a lavish costume ball is being held. During the ball the young well-to-do Felix de Momery announces his engagement to pretty Ruth, much to the concern of his grandmother and annoyance of his friends. However, the young couple's future (and survival) is linked with another tragic wedding day and a ghostly bride who haunts the corridors.

!!! WARNING. THIS REVIEW MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS. !!!

History teacher Ben(Lee Ingleby) finds an old door knocker in his garden and interested in its origins, takes it to the curator of a local museum. The curator(Mark Gatiss) recognises it immediately as being the old door knocker from Geap Manor. After some cajoling from Ben, the curator relates the horrible history of the manor to his captivated audience. In the first story he tells, ruthless entrepreneur Joshua Bloxham(Philip Jackson) having recently moved into Geap Manor is making alterations to the interior. Hearing noises at night, he invests in a cat. When the noises continue, he soon finds out there are other things, apart from rodents that go bump in the night. In the second story, we reach 1927 and an announcement made at a party by foppish Felix(Ian Hallard) of his forthcoming marriage. However his bride-to-be starts seeing a mysterious shrouded figure in a wedding dress around the house. Only Felix's Grandmother Constance(Jean Marsh) knows the horrible truth, a truth that a gift of 'something old' to the bride soon brings out into the open. The third story, returning to the present day sees Ben return home with the door knocker, the curator allowing him to keep it. The knocker finds pride of place on Ben's front door. One night, Ben is awoken by a loud knocking at the door. He accidentially gets locked out of his house, but using the spare key he re-enters the house. He finds himself transported back to the beginnings of Geap Manor, where the original owner sowed the seeds of evil in the house by dabbling in the occult. Is the past reaching out to the present to threaten Ben.
I have finally managed to watch this, after missing it upon its original transmission.(Some of us do have to work at Christmas!).
