Movie Info

Aubrey Judd, the radio series' veteran presenter and national treasure, finds that he must adapt to changing times and tastes. But whatever happened to the classic ghost stories? Aubrey soon discovers that all is not quiet in the eerie radio studio - and that elements of his own past are not as dead and buried as he perhaps hoped.


Critic Reviews for The Dead Room

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (1)

  • While it didn't hold a candle to the masterpiece of the series, The Signalman from 1976, it put Simon Callow's fruity, orotund voice to very fine use as Aubrey Judd.

  • The Dead Room was more clever academic exercise than an all-out horror.

  • Mark Gatiss's script was (for him, yet for him only) a little pedestrian for a ghost story, but this was elevated to a different plane by Callow's camera-hugging turn.

  • Gatiss' direction is reliably creepy and of course, the whole thing is held together by Simon Callow. When you have an actor as compelling and charismatic as Callow carrying a story, it's hard to go wrong.
