A Ghost Story for Christmas: The Signalman

Lawrence Gordon Clark United Kingdom, 1976

the_mentaculus's rating of the film The Signalman

A deceptively simple spookfest that works so admirably as a result of its brevity. Until its resolution lifts the curtain on the central mystery, the film does beautiful things with identity - asking all the right questions on who is who (or what).
