Simon Moore reviews Ghost Stories: Classic Adaptations from the BBC - Volume 1...

Whistle and I’ll Come To You, 2010.

Directed by Andy de Emmony.

Montague Rhodes James, better known as M.R. James, was a Mediaeval scholar and provost of Eton and King’s College. He also happened to enjoy scaring the holy shivering bejesus out of people. He wrote the short stories that are the basis for these adaptations some hundred years ago.

Don’t kid yourself that means these tales come from a more innocent time. James was an antiquarian; a student of the world’s ancient past. He knew better than most that greed and pride and vengeance were nothing new to mankind. Pride »
