Brilliant

This would make a great short movie.
One of my favourites.
As with many of Mr. James stories it starts as a mystery and slowly unfolds as we go along.

Eerie Tale of a Haunted Doll House

This was a wonderful eerie tale of a haunted doll house by the master of the genre, MR James. It contains a twist that was not what I expected. Wonderful story and narration by David Collings.

One of my favorite ghost stories..

M.R. James is the master.. now imagine a haunted doll house.. in your bedroom.. in the middle of the night.
Horror comes in tiny spaces..
