ATMOSPHERIC GHOST STORY,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Signalman [VHS]  (VHS Tape)
I saw this years ago when the B.B.C promised at Christmas more than the drivel we get now and each christmas eve we got a 'ghost story for xmas'. 'The signalman' was on par with the others and Denholm Elliot excels, dripping with atmosphere and beautifully photograph one can't help wondering why the powers at the B.B.C decided to drop the idea (probably because they now consider it to 'intellectual'). How i wish they'd put out other classic ghost stories like 'the ash tree'(the best ever. I still get chills thinking of the final scene) or the series'not before midnight' and why we're on the subject have ITV really rubbed out the classic 'tales of mystery and imagination'? which is the yardstick all horror films should be judged by. One beef about these B.B.C videos, they're less than an hour long, wouldn't it have been nice if they'd put two stories on one video. I mean, they're not that cheap are they?
