Frequently Bought Together
Revered, misunderstood and oft-discussed, Stephen Weeks' rarely seen 1974 dreamlike chiller is the absolute definition of a cult British Horror film. Set in 1920 s England it tells of three former public schoolmates, Larry Dann (The Bill), Murray Melvin (The Devils) and the enigmatic Vivian Mackerell (the inspiration for Bruce Robinson' s creation 'Withnail', seen here in his only major screen role), who reunite in a country mansion haunted by the spirit of insane former resident Marianne Faithfull (Girl On A Motorcycle). The haunting transports them to a surreal world of demonic dolls, sadistic doctors, incest and murder. Hammer fans will see Barbara Shelley (Dracula Prince Of Darkness) and Leigh Lawson (Hammer House Of Horror), among the cast, 'cult TV' enthusiasts will recognise Anthony Bate (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Beasts), and sitcom lovers will enjoy a cameo from Penelope Keith (The Good Life,To The Manor Born). This combination of 1970 s Britsploitation and 1920 s quaintness, realised perfectly by Weeks and soundtracked by Pink Floyd collaborator Ron Geesin, have made Ghost Story legendary. Now, for the first time on DVD Nucleus Films proudly presents this pristine 2-disc collectors edition including Ghost Stories , an in depth featurette about the curious tale about the making of the film, an audio commentary, a trailer and a selection of Weeks' fascinating early shorts and commercials. 2 DISC COLLECTOR S EDITION - with booklet DVD Extras include: Ghost Stories an all-new 60 minute featurette including interviews with Director/Producer Stephen Weeks, Actors Larry Dann and Murray Melvin and British Horror Icon Barbara Shelley, plus composer Ron Geesin who worked with Pink Floyd, plus UK critic Kim Newman. 7 previously unseen early short films! 1960s The Chelsea Cobbler commercial!

The extras alone are more than worth the purchase price of this double disc set. but it's the movie itself that is the gold in this release. Atmospheric, creepy, full of character, (and characters! Murray Melvin's character alone is pure gold!) and a wonderful setting, redolent of better times from England's past. (Though the movie itself was filmed in India, but you get my drift).
Not to be confused with the American made movie of the same name featuring Fred Astaire, (that one was mediocre) this is a story, featuring the olde worlde charm of days gone by, I should imagine set in the 1920s or early 1930s judging by the fashions, car, and gramophone featured. - Witness the scene with Murray Melvin dancing alone to the gramophone! Great. The synopsis of this movie is roughly as follows:
Three well-bred guys spend a vacation in a lovely old house, courtesy of Murray Melvin's character's family maybe leaving him a legacy to it, I can't recall the exact reason. One of the guys soon becomes obsessed with a creepy doll, and thenceforth begins reliving the past experiences of former resident, (played by Marianne Faithful) whose incestuous brother had her committed to a lunatic asylum to asuage his guilty feelings. This story is told in flashback sequences, witnessed by the poor chap who becomes completely unhinged by it all, as you could well imagine! Penelope Keith is in there somewhere, in the sub-plot story concerning Marianne Faithful's character, but it is the sequences concerning the three friends themselves that make the movie for me.Read more ›
This movie is often criticised for being dull, but that's unfair. It's talky, yes, but there's plenty going on and a lot of threads that are left unexplained - such as Duller's experiments with the occult and an implication that he's there to conduct experiments and not just hunt for birds... In fact, you're never quite certain just what is going on, which makes it all the more interesting.
The film looks good on this print - colourful and crisp, with the Indian location providing an eerie, "other world" feeling. The location fits the flashbacks, and Week's use of zooms and close ups sometimes makes it feel more like a movie from Mainland Europe than the UK.
The DVD comes with an extra disc crammed full of stuff, including an excellent "making of" documentary.
This is thoroughly recommended - maybe it's time for a re-appraisal of Ghost Story.
