A WARNING TO THE CURIOUS, 10 Mar. 2005
One of the better adaptions of a M.R. James story.
Creepy is the word, you appreciate the lonlieness of the whole stroy and the main characters are the only people who exist.
I have actually done the walk along the shore and around that area and it made me feel more apart of the plot.
Watch for the scene when he is joined in his bedroom. Afterall we all sometimes wakeup staring in to the dark, wondering if we have been joined by a total stranger.
The long shots of the spectre are just enough for you to wonder, you don't need horror, when you have professional subtlety.
