Product Description

Product Description

Joe Ahearne writes and directs this three-part TV adaptation of James Herbert's ghostly novel. A year after their young son Cabe goes missing without trace, Eve (Suranne Jones) and Gabe (Tom Ellis) Caleigh decide a change of scene would help, and set out with their daughters for what they hope will be the rustic delights of Crickley Hall. Shortly after arriving in the Devonshire village of Devil's Cleave, however, the family start to experience strange paranormal events, which somehow seem to be linked to the disappearance of their son. As the story continues to unfold, both in the past and the present day, the Caleigh's soon come to realise that the darkly gothic mansion possesses a secret evil from which they can't escape.

Having been a huge fan of James Herbert since the days of "The Rats", I was engulfed with enthusiasm when I first read about the cast that had been brought together for "The Secret of Crickley Hall". TV Mini-Series based on horror novels always play better than theatrical movies. Stephen King's IT, Desperation, The Shining, Rose Red, etc, etc....
Eve, Gabe (Suranne Jones, Tom Ellis) and their children Loren, Cam and Cally, live in London until Cam goes missing. Eve falls asleep for a few seconds at a playground and he disappears. Nearly a year later, Gabe suggests relocating the family to the North, hoping a change of scenery will give Eve some comfort, as they all still cling to the hope that Cam may be alive. When they first arrive at Crickley Hall, they meet Percy Judd (David Warner) who worked there during the war; he seems concerned for their children. They start to settle in but before long, strange things start to happen at the house. They hear people, Cally claims to have been hit by a man with a cane and their dog runs away in terror. In the house Eve hears her missing son's voice for the first time in a year. He says he is alive and the children can tell her where he is. After Loren suffers a terrifyingly real nightmare where she gets whipped by the man with the cane, Gabe wants them all to leave, but Eve can't bear to abandon her son.
This terrifying story is spliced together through flashbacks (in chronological order) with a back-story from 1943: Crickley Hall is an orphanage for children evacuated from the Blitz. Nancy (Olivia Cooke) is interviewed for the position of `tutor' by Magda (Sarah Smart), sister of Augustus Cribben (Douglas Henshall) who runs the orphanage.

I thought that it was a good adaption overall - the best and most chilling episode being the first one, in my opinion. However, as it progressed, it began to deviate from the source material - slightly at first and then wildly towards the end. Without spoiling it for everyone, the end isn't even remotely like the book's ending and is far too sickly sweet.
Having said that, the performances brilliant. Tom Ellis; Suranne Jones and a pre-GOT Maisie Williams lead the cast in the present day, and Douglass Henshall and Sarah Smart are menacing in their roles as the menacing; abusive Cribben siblings, Augustus and Magda. Sarah Smart brings a sultry seductiveness to the role of Magda Cribben in a way not portrayed in the book, and it works really well. Olivia Cook also shines in her role of trainee teacher Nancy Linnet, and her desperate (and ultimately futile) struggle to expose Augustus Cribben as the bullying; abusive tyrant that he is will have you glued to the screen.
Overall, I would say that it's worth checking out if you're a fan of haunted house stories. Fans of the book may be irritated by the source material deviations, though.

...if it was a little less "familiar" and a little more gothic.
I mean, it's got all the aces to really scare you, but it seems to purposely not try to do it, because at the end of the day the tale is about people, feelings, motivations and suffering, rather than fear and ancestral mysteries.
It's not as powerful and brilliant as ITV's Marchland (which is strange enough to me, considering the High standard of BBC), where human sides, mystery, production and stylistic values were perfectly balanced.
Still interesting and worth watching

I found this thoroughly engaging even though I generally shy away from any series or film where cruelty to children is evident. There was a sincerity to the actors and the ghost was a (dare I say) wonderfully malevolent character and force. I don't want to offer any spoilers but the twists near the end were excellent. The only line I disliked was "you can change" simply because that is so trite.

Watched it last night in one hit, I forgotten how good it was. Yet again the BBC pull out all the stops on this excellent drama. Had me on the edge of the sofa most of the time. Well acted, by all, more so the child actress/actors. 5 stars all the way. A must see, but not on your own like I did!

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
