Atmospheric but flawed
21 December 2005 | by (Isle of Man) – See all my reviews

I was very excited to see Lost Hearts as part of the BBC Four ghost week: the story has been a horror-genre benchmark for me since I saw it in 1966 (Mystery & Imagination). This, however, is the 1973 version, and a disappointment. The film quality and set design are very good, and probably superior to the earlier version. But. In this version, Mr Abney is bordering on clownish; the ghosts aren't frightening or "other worldly"; details differ significantly from M R James's story; the climax is a let-down. I wonder if the 1966 version still exists: it was faithful to James's story, the ghosts were truly frightening and the climax was horribly unexpected - mainly due to the Mr Abney character being more realistic and manipulating the audience into a false sense of security. I would love to see it again.
