A grouchy college professor, who thinks that anything “supernatural” must have a logical explanation, goes on vacation to a lonely coastal village. When an old whistle is found on the beach one day, the professor blows through it. Little does he know that he has just awakened a supernatural terror beyond his comprehension. This excellent British horror gem is a must. Based on the chilling tale by M. R. James. Cool. From 35mm. ALSO: The Fall Of The House Of Usher (1928) Herbert Stern, Hildegarde Watson, Melville Webber. When a wayward traveler arrives at the Usher mansion, he discovers that the family members are living under the effects of a horrible curse. This short, avante garde version of the Poe classic is wonderfully gloomy in its almost dream-like presentation. Silent with music score.
STARRING: Michael Hordern, Ambrose Coghill, George Woodbridge, Nora Gordon
