the old woolworths, the moor S1
Chilling and chilly! Our knowledgeable friend Christopher Wibberley brought along his 16mm projector and print of this ghost story anthology from Ealing Studios. Changing the reel the first time left us on tenterhooks, wondering what would happen to the man who saw a 19th century room in his mirror. We chuckled at the wonderful 1940s accents and lines (eg “I’m not frightened, I’m not frighted, oh [she faints]”), and were gripped by the tales of unusual goings on. And all with the backdrop of Theatre Delicatessen’s Horror Souk.
