Ghost Story (1974) finally heads to DVD as two-disc Collector's Edition


Many months ago, we ran a 'where's the DVD' feature on Stephen Weeks' Ghost Story from 1974, hoping someone somewhere would finally give this lost gem a DVD release, Well, our prayers have been answered by the excellent Nucleus Films label.

I recall this vividly from my childhood and to be honest, I've never seen it since - but the fear it put into me at that young age isn't easily forgotten. Directed by Stephen Weeks and starring Marianne Faithfull, Ghost Story is set in the 1920s, with three old schoolmates reuniting in a country mansion, haunted by an insane former resident (Faithfull), who transports them back to the horror of her Victorian world. Soundtrack by Pink Floyd collaborator Ron Geesin too, would you believe.

The new DVD version looks every bit as interesting as the movie itself, featuring a 60-minite featurette on the film, seven previously-unseem shorts by Weeks, a 1960s Chelsea Cobbler commercial, audio commentary and theatrical trailer. It lands on 19th October 2009, with Amazon already discounting it to just over £13.

And a rare acting appearance by Withnail himself, Vivian McKerrell! This looks like a bit of a gem, well spotted.
