User Reviews

 
brief comedy
29 March 2002 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Chaunduyt is rather like Brigadoon, locked in time centuries before. A bomb hits the castle and manages to awake a ghost, who is rather a jolly old soul. Word gets out about the ghost, and other findings, and suddenly the manor is open to tourists, and newcomers flood Chaunduyt, not all with good intentions. A young professor is most interested in some ancient manuscripts

  • and the current Earl's daughter - but he ends up getting much more


involved, in a fight with the villagers, aided by the ghost, over some developers who want to bring Chaunduyt a little more up to date.

Fairly amusing. 6/10
