I have to confess, I am not entirely sure about the copyright status of this one.

It looks like a fan film – BUT it features a rather well-known actor, Robert Powell, who might sound to Coleridgians for his work on David Bedford’s musical treatment of “The Rime of the Ancient Mariner”.

M. R. James, as you surely might know if you follow this blog, is one of my favorite authors of all time. His emphasis is on supernatural stories, of course, and one might easily mistake him for an inferior competitor to Poe, Bierce, and Lovecraft.

His most famous story collection, Ghost Stories of an Antiquary, from which this tale is taken, is one of my favorite books in the English language, believe it or not.

So, in short, no spoilers here: Enchanted picture, big woe! — Enjoy!
