Atmospheric Tragedy
9 August 2005 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Some people who have read James' novella might be off-put by the changes made here: the change of setting, the change of narrator. However, I find that this adaptation is the most faithful to the source of any I have seen. It conveys the mood, the nature of the spectres, and the bewilderment of the novella extremely well.

If you want a grey, word-perfect recitation of the story, you can find it elsewhere, but this captures the nature of the torment better than any other.

I do not recommend it for everyone, however, since you have to leave your expectations at the door.
