Wonderfully Wicked Halloween Fare
30 October 2013 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

This dark tale of Victorian horror really has it all: the splendour of the period, decrepit Gothic mansions, overgrown graveyards, great characters, suspense and a cast of very good actors.

Beatie Edney is lovely and sweet as the young heiress Maud, Jane Lapotaire simply marvelous as the wicked governess, and the great Peter O'Toole - what can I say? He is as wonderful as ever and brings the bright and the dark elements of this tale beautifully together with his ability to make the transition from being charming and seemingly benign to pure spine chilling evil in a split second. It's worth watching this for his performance alone.

They should show this every year for Halloween. It's absolutely wonderful!
