One of the most intriguing mysteries is whether or not there is another plane of existence beyond our own. Shades of Darkness delves into the world of the supernatural with six bizarre, inexplicable and frightening ghost stories as told by some of the greatest mystery authors of all time. (Elizabeth Bowen, C.H.B. Kitchin, May Sinclair, and Edith Wharton)
The Lady’s Maid’s Bell (by Edith Warton)
Joanna David (Rebecca) stars as Hartley, the new maid to Mr. and Mrs. Brympton, whose household is believed to be haunted by the spirit of their last maid, Emma. Sure enough, the ghostly Emma soon turns up, drawing Hartley into the scandalous goings-on between Mrs. Brympton and her randy next-door neighbor, Mr. Ranford.
Afterward (by Edith Warton)
An unusual twist on the standard story of young newlyweds who buy a beautiful old house only to find that it’s haunted. In this case, a young American husband and his wife come to England, purposely looking for a grand old haunted house. They get the house and are assured a ghost will make an appearance before too long. For once, the real estate agent didn’t sell them a bill of goods. There is a ghost all right, but its’ one the husband hoped he’d never have to face.
The Maze (by C.H.B. Kitchin)
Francesa Annis (Partners in Crime) plays Catherine, a woman who comes back to her ancestral home after many years. Her 8 year-old daughter, Daisy, is fascinated by the maze of hedges in the garden, but Catherine is deathly afraid of what might lurk there. One day Daisy takes the hand of a strange man and follows him into the maze.
HIGHLY Recommended for ghost story enthusiasts. Each adaptation is handled with integrity, and are very true to the original stories. Fantastic atmosphere and very engrossing.
