  • It is no small boast to make on behalf of the 1968 film to call it a work richer and more resonant than what I have no problem saying is James' best ghost story.

Audience Reviews for Whistle and I'll Come to You

  • Apr 18, 2011
    A creepy short film based on the M R James story. Having seen the recent Xmas remake on BBC 1 I wanted to track this version down. I liked the atmosphere the recent version created by only using th soundtrack of the wind but I can see it nicked the idea from here. The whole thing starts off quite humourously with a funny performances from Horden as he arrives athe guest house. He barely utters one coherent word throughout the film and mumbles all the time but this gives the impression of a character constantly using his brain and perhaps running himself ragged. When he finally finds the whistle (not the ring as the recent version mysteriously substituted instead) the tension starts to build and he's soon seeing figures in the distance on the beach and being kept awake at night by rattling windows and nightmares of being pursued on the beach. When the finale hits he almost loses his mind. It's a great performance from the actor. I only wish they could have had more of the figure on the beach and the knocking on the door that featured so heavily in the recent remake. Neither stick completely to the original story but they both create brilliant atmosphere throughout and have genuine scares. Well worth tracking down and watching on a cold, stormy night.
