creepy and haunting story from Kingsley Amis
12 May 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Sheridan Owen (Jeremy Brett) is an arrogant author of horror/suspense fiction who has had a big hit with his book 'The Ferryman'. When we first see him his character is very much established, flapping his wife away when he just wants to see an interview he's done for television.

Whether 'The Ferryman' is a work from fiction or from life, the story seems to prey on his mind. And when he and his wife (Natasha Parry) lose their way in a rainstorm and end up at a friendly inn with no other guests, the co-incidences start to mount up.

With support from a young Lesley Dunlop, 'Haunted - The Ferryman' delivers chills and thrills (and some smiles) during its short running time. Like Sheridan, we're bewildered about what's happening - and like him, we really don't understand what happens in the end. The ending is the biggest problem with this programme - it is muddled, and rushed. If an hour had been available for this adaptation, perhaps that could have been addressed.

Still, both Brett and Parry are very good and the situation in which they find themselves unfolds in - at first - a leisurely pace. Recommended for fans of things like Tales of the Unexpected and probably of Kingsley Amis fiction.
