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". Written by Teresa B. O'Donnell <sun.moon.stars@worldnet.att.net>

'Angry Young Man' gets an honest shake on film
26 August 2004 | by (St. John's, Newfoundland) – See all my reviews

Kingsley Amis, a charter member of the English 'Angry Young Men' club of post World War II writers, wrote a marvelous book containing equal parts of horror and humour.

'The Green Man' is an adequite translation of Amis's literary masterpiece to the screen; alas, in this case, the television screen.

Albert Finney delivers a preformance to match the character Amis created to present the story of a centuries-old child molester who still inhabits the precincts of the home in which he lived.

The production is English, hence, superior. If this one doesn't stick with you...check your pulse.
