Great to hear that these are getting re-released, have been wanting to see Whistle and I'll Come to You and A Warning to the Curious for a while now but the DVDs are so expensive

Slippery Jack 14th July 2012 04:43 PM

WOOOOO HOOOOO :woot: . . .

:dance:

I wish they were releasing Ghost Stories For Christmas read by Christopher Lee. :(

Maybe if these sell well... :pray:

Extras include:

Ghost Stories for Christmas with Christopher Lee – ‘The Stalls of Barchester by MR James’ (Eleanor Yule, 2000, 30 mins): Christopher Lee recreates MR James’ famous soirees, at which the antiquary would read his tales of the supernatural to eager undergraduates.
Ghost Stories for Christmas with Christopher Lee – ‘A Warning to the Curious by MR James’ (Eleanor Yule, 2000, 30 mins): Christopher Lee plays MR James in this dramatic reconstruction of one of the author’s famous Christmas readings.

:o Thanks Slippery Jack.

I saw them available on Amazon a couple of days ago and never actually read Suzi's post. :blush:

One October box set preorder coming up.:nod:

mark meakin 15th July 2012 09:28 AM

I have the Aussie set so it's really great the BFI are releasing the only ones not on it (Signalman,Stigma & The Ice House) together on one volume.:)

Make Them Die Slowly 15th July 2012 12:40 PM

I'm looking forwards to these releases though I normally avoid anything with ghosts as they tend to scare the shit out of me for some reason.:behindsofa:

I watch The Signalman every year, when it is suitably cold and dark outside. I just wish it was one big collection rather than 4 dvds.

Slippery Jack 21st July 2012 09:25 AM

HELOOOOOO BELOOOOOW

Creepy stuff. Can't beat the Michael Horden Whistle. Thought the John Hurt version was a big letdown . . .

Hawkmonger 4th August 2012 05:52 PM

I wonder what BFI have got lined up for there Q4 season. More horror possibly?
Brit horror is so much fun to watch. Most of it.:pop2:

The Reaper Man@Cult Labs 31st August 2012 09:58 PM

Excellent packages from the BFI as usual.
I got sick of phoning various HMV's to no avail....:crazy:

If you don't mind me asking why didn't you wait for the box set in October?

Is it inferior to the individual releases?

The Reaper Man@Cult Labs 31st August 2012 10:06 PM

Patience ain't my forte mate......GOTTA HAVE NOW! :happy:

Demdike@Cult Labs 10th September 2012 07:55 PM

The box set is now a bargain £26 on Amazon pre order.

Hurry it won't stay at this for long.

I thought it was rubbish, the original kicked its ass in every department . . .

I agree I thought it was a dreadful version of the story.

The Reaper Man@Cult Labs 23rd September 2012 08:40 AM

Each to their own.
I enjoyed it.

I liked how the older version was shown on 'Omnibus' anyone else remember that?

Picked up the latest two yesterday.
Edinburgh prices.£21 each! :lol:

Yikes! I'm glad I bothered to pre-order it on the 23rd! I thought £26 wouldn't last for long.

Yep - agreed. I originally saw this on the telly as a kid ( it was shown on Boxing Day! ) and it frightened the crap out of me! Still very creepy and atmospheric today. Recommended.
