A Pleasant Terror: The Life and Ghosts of M.R. James

Movie • 1995 • Documentary  

Report
A biopic on the author M. R. James. If M.R. James wrote his ghost stories purely to entertain his friends, why do they seem to strike such resonances in readers? Why are they so terrifying? Clive Dunn's fifty minute documentary sets out to try to answer this question.
