Maurice Allington, the alcoholic, sexually promiscuous, and unappealing lead character owns a country inn called "The Green Man." He frightens and regales his guests, when he's not trying to seduce them, with tales of ghosts ans spirits haunting his hotel. The fun begins when he and they realize the haunts are real and malevolent. At times sexual farce, at others, ghostly thriller, this movie is aptly called a "ghost story for adults".Written by

We love, Love, LOVE The GREENMAN and would love to have it in our inventory. We've searched high and low and can't find a copy - anyone out there know how/where we can locate one? Yep, we've tried Amazon, etc. to no avail. This is the perfect Halloween movie and we're fast approaching another witching season and would love to see it again. It's a classic "adult" ghost story worth seeing. The mood is dark yet entertaining and the performances of the entire cast are riveting and spell binding. Albert Finney outdoes himself as the owner of an Inn (The Greenman) whose past is filled with secrets, mystery and the unknown. If you like The Fog and the suspicious nature of what's going to happen next, you'll enjoy The Greenman, year after year.
