Storyline

After Adam inherits a country house from his great uncle, he and his friend Rufus decide to spend the summer there instead of abroad. An odd assortment of 'house guests' turns up through different means and it's an uneasy mix at best. A decade afterwards, the bodies of a young woman and an infant are discovered in the woods behind the house. As the police investigate, they naturally look to Adam as former owner of the house, and what happened all those years before starts to catch up with him. Written by Ron Kerrigan <mvg@whidbey.com>

Haunted a nine year old
28 September 2001 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I looked for this for a long time, as I could only remember the plot, and none of the authors or writer...and I only realised after I recognised Douglas Hodge when he was in the Caretaker on stage, that i got my lead...

This was an excellently atmospheric dramatatisation about indulgence, abuse, decay and guilt and the past catching up. It was wonderfully scripted and acted...and there was something really chilling about that house and those grounds...

I remember watching this when i was nine, wrapped in a blanket on cold winter's nights..and it gave me nightmares for weeks afterwards...but i didnt mind that....
