An amateur archaeologist, Mr Paxton (Peter Vaughan), travels to the coastal Norfolk town of Seaburgh. His research has uncovered an old Anglo-Saxon legend telling of three fabled crowns that protect England from invasion. One is said to have been lost in a war, a second lost to the sea - but the third is thought to be hidden somewhere near Seaburgh. Paxton checks into a local inn where, despite the suspicions of the locals, he hears that another archaeologist searching for the crown was found dead more than a decade ago. His inquiries lead him to the grave of a local man, William Ager who was said to be the last of his line and a guardian of the crown. Paxton goes to search the woods near Ager's former home but his excavations will unearth something more than the fabled crown.

Quite simply one of the most amazingly creepy and genuinely hackle-raising supernatural horror films ever made. Not particularly faithful to the original MR James short story but a blinding adaptation nonetheless! Contains a number of very good scares and on the whole avoids going for the obvious. Its one of the few films whose impact doesnt lessen with each viewing.

  1. One of the very best. Thanks for posting. Anyone who enjoys horror needs to watch this. Not exactly 100% M.R. James but far above the average horror film.
