Very enjoyable and spooky ghost story
21 February 2005 | by See all my reviews

I taped The Ghost Of Greville Lodge when ITV screened it one morning during the Christmas holiday of 2004. I found it rather spooky and very enjoyable.

A teenage boy who has lived in a children's' home for most of his life is invited to stay with his Great Uncle at his manor house, Greville Lodge at holiday time. What the boy doesn't know is that the manor is haunted. When there, he explores the manor and its grounds and comes across its many secrets. These include sealed doors and he opens one of them one night and we then learn of Greville Lodge's many secrets...

I found this movie very spooky at times, especially the night time scenes.

The cast includes veteran stars George Cole (Minder) and Prunella Scales (Faulty Towers). The teenage boy is played by Jon Newman. All play good parts.

The Ghost Of Greville Lodge is worth seeing if you get the chance.

Rating: 3 stars out of 5.
