Whilst ordering some DVDs from Amazon (more Gilmore Girls and Sopranos series – see previous posting) I also spotted a film I hadn’t seen since I was a kid, Dead of Night. It was made just after the war by Ealing studios. The accents and the acting are a little comic but it’s far from being a comedy. It relates a series of chilling dream sequencies and ghost stories from a gathering of country house guests. I was 7 or 8 when I first saw it and it really frigging spooked me.
