BBC4 to celebrate Halloween with Dennis Wheatley

The Haunted Airman

Not content with scaring us last Christmas with a whole load of ghost stories, BBC4 has decided Halloween could do with some subtle chills as well. So they’ve adapted Dennis Wheatley’s The Haunting of Toby Jugg as The Haunted Airman, ready to give us all the shudders on All Hallow’s Eve.

It is, however, worth noting that Julian Sands is going to be in it, so maybe it won’t be that terrifying after all. Except in other ways.

Take a trip to the web site to view some video clips, if you will.
