The Ash Tree (by M.R. James)

Fancy a chill before going to bed? I promised that I would upload a horror film for the Halloween countdown. Here it is. My readers know that I admire the work of M.R. James. I found on YouTube the BBC adaptation of The Ash Tree. Not as good as the original (which you can read here), but still. It is the story of the ghost of a witch, grosso modo. be warned: it is a very slow, subtle, subdued, "corner of the eyes" type of horror. I still find it very effective. Tell me what you think of it anyway.

I watched it.. it was well done. I liked the settings, backgrounds and costumes too. I was surprised by the ending.

I thought it was really life like. They don't do horror movies like them anymore, and certainly not on TV.
