suspenseful tale by a haunted woman
29 January 2016 | by See all my reviews

This is a story about the events that haunt the narrator (Jenny).

The ensemble of actors play their parts believably. The narrator tells the story of the writer's tour, sketching in the histories of the two guides and eight tourists interested in discovering the secrets behind mystery writer Eleanor Mont. Are her books really autobiographical or did she have a really great talent to transform the remote North Sea fishing village into a cauldron of Gothic terror and suspense? This is not a horror story in the "corpse in the cellar" sense. It is a throwback to those classic British stories with mad relatives, moody heroes, dastardly villains, and settings where tragic events from the past still infect the spot (and possibly our tourists?). Think of it as more along the lines of Daphne du Maurier's novel "Rebecca" than a "Nightmare on Elm Street".

For me, this episode works very well.

However, I had to deduct 2 points for the piercing score that sets the mood with a brick trowel. Oh, and another point for that wimpy ending as the narrator, Jenny, comes back to the present.
