Storyline

Maurice Allington, the alcoholic, sexually promiscuous, and unappealing lead character owns a country inn called "The Green Man." He frightens and regales his guests, when he's not trying to seduce them, with tales of ghosts ans spirits haunting his hotel. The fun begins when he and they realize the haunts are real and malevolent. At times sexual farce, at others, ghostly thriller, this movie is aptly called a "ghost story for adults".

It was fabulous in every way. A joy !
28 October 1998 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

It has it all. Acting, plot and a good cast. I loved every moment of the movie. I refuse to tell you the plot because there are many in this movie which all join together.
