Hugh Paxton’s blog watches the Anilbalan Ghost Cities Blog’s countdown to Christmas with consistent interest! A View from a Hill is actually one of MR James’s creepiest stories. Not quite a horror story but definitely a ghost story nudging at the boundaries of that genre. The BBC TV version is slow, old fashioned, fussy with its attention to seemingly irrelevant detail, then eek! You’ve just reared up in alarm and have spilled scalding mulled wine over your groin!
Happened to me twice watching this one!
