An adaptation of the james herbert book and directed by lewis gilbert. With a combination like that it would be hard for a film to go wrong - and pleased to say it doesnt. It's a classic type of british ghost story - in the tradition of writers like M R James with a hint of the 'turn of the screw' thrown in for good measure. And like any good ghost story it's a mix of sadness, tragedy, love and chills and all augmented by debbie wise's poignant score. Has a couple of nice twists towards the end too. If youre a fan of the traditional ghost story you wont be disappointed.

For some reason however this film is only available on dvd from holland - how an adaptation of a british ghost story isnt available from the uk is a mystery to me. But it has an english audio option so this isnt a problem for viewers in the uk. The disk also has a nice 25 minute bonus feature on the film which includes interviews with cast members - john geilgud, anthony andrews, kate beckinsale and aidan quinn - and some background info on the atmospheric location that forms 'edbrook hall 'where the bulk of the story takes place. Perhaps the only disappointing thing about the disk for me is that it's in 4:3 when 16:9 would have been much better for enhancing edbrook hall and the picturesque english countryside.

Haunted is rarely seen on tv and is a steal at just a fiver - oh and it arrived from holland in just a few days.So if you like your classic ghost stories do yourself a favour and treat yourself to this very underated movie.

This film is my all time favourite. It is a horror film, yet is full of beauty. It has a mix of the onimous with a dreamy fantasy. It is very clever by its use of supression (witholding a part of narrative until later) with the sudden revelation at the cemetary, which makes the viewer look back differently, such as why the old maid is talking to herself and why she is afraid of the Doctor. It also makes the viewer ask questions, such as why could the fortune teller see the beautiful girl? It also has a beautiful tint of sadness, that the protagonist could not fulfil his dream with his dream partner. This film is bewitching, which gives it so much appeal.

A good story, with a twist. Good to watch when only rubbish or re-repeats are on broadcast TV.

It's very different from the book and not really in the same league as "The Turn of the Screw" - but I've always liked the musical score, the atmosphere it possesses and the "let's get the sceptic" theme: Then there's Kate Beckinsale as Christina, sexiest supernatural being by miles!
