Ghostly and macabre tales from the pen of Victorian writer M.R. James, widely considered to be one of the best writers in the ghost story genre.
Lost Hearts - When the orphaned Stephen moves to live with his wealthy Uncle Abney, he finds himself haunted by a pair of ghostly children. It seems that the ghosts, a gypsy boy and an orphaned girl, had been staying at Abney's houde when they met their untimely ends. Is Abney responsible, and if so, what could it have to do with his obsession with immortality?
The Treasure of Abbot Thomas - A scholar and a former pupil become obsessed with searching for the legendary treasure hidden away by a black magic practicing abbot. But the treasure is being guarded by something indescribably evil and the ghost of the abbot himself seems to be stalking the pair.
The Ash Tree - After taking up his inheritance, Sir Richard Dickin is haunted by dreams of his ancestor Sir Matthew Dickin, who condemned a local woman to death as a witch. Before dying, the woman cursed the Dickin family and when animals on Sir Richard's estate start to die mysteriously, it seems the curse may be about to visit him. But what part does the ash tree outside the mansion play in all of this, and what horrors are lurking within its branches?
