So it comes as a shock to find that a distant family member has traced him, and invited him to his home. So begins James trial two-week holiday at his Great Uncle s (George Cole) country manor: Greville Lodge. James spends most of his time alone exploring the sprawling Greville Lodge and soon discovers that the Lodge has many secrets, including doors to the west wing which have been sealed shut.

VCI Entertainment presents "THE GHOST OF GREVILLE LODGE" (October 2000 (UK)) (90 min/Color) (Dolby digitally remastered) --- The director Niall Johnson has given us a well directed and layed out story with some of the best actors in the business sharing center stage --- The cast is strong with shades of a classic if it were filmed during the '40s, but it is still worth a view --- Starts out very slow, then builds as all the pieces come together until the final scene which is worth the wait, but the surprise ending keeps you wondering for days --- A veteran cast of Prunella Scales and George Cole, with some newcomers Jon Newman, Rebecca Weeks and Billy Smith who give this a fresh look.

the cast includes:
Jon Newman ... James Greville
Prunella Scales ... Sarah
Marc Danbury ... Social Worker
George Cole ... Great Uncle
Kevin Howarth ... Billyboy
Stephen Lyons ... Radio Announcer
Howard Coggins ... Durban
Billy Smith ... Ben
Christian Rodska ... James' Father
Rebecca Weeks ... Midge

This is worth a view, has some great scenery that gives this film a Gothic feel, which is another character in the film

Orphaned teenager James Greville (John Newman) travels to his Great Uncle's sprawling and rather secluded English countryside manor to spend the holidays with him. After inadvertently over-hearing conversations between manor staff about the restless ghosts of the manor, James decides to explore the manor to see whether or not the rumors about it being haunted are true. His explorations ultimately lead to the discovery a long sealed-off wing that proves to hold haunting secrets about both the Greville Family and the Lodge itself. Ghosts and eerie happenings abound but not to the point that they will be frightening to the younger set.

"The Ghost of Greville Lodge" is an interesting ghost story that will appeal to families as its not gory, explicit or overtly scary. Its very much a traditional ghost story, taking its time to let the story unfold and build its atmosphere. A teenage boy, James Greville (Jon Newman) has spent the greater part of his life in children's homes and is shocked to be told by social workers that he has a relative, a great uncle (George Cole) who has invited him to come live at his home, Greville Lodge. Great Uncle seems to be a man of few words, and James finds himself intrigued by the old house. He is taken care of by Sarah the housekeeper (Prunella Scales) who seems to know more than she lets on. Over a period of time, James becomes convinced that the house is haunted, and sees a man in shadows watching him, as well as hears strange noises. James is determined to investigate the source of the hauntings, an endeavour that literally takes him back to the past, in 1945, which reveals some dark secrets at Greville Lodge, one that involves both Sarah and Great Uncle, and James may well be the key to unlocking those secrets and finally laying those ghosts of the past to rest.

I loved the story, especially the way the story takes its time unfolding (some may consider it rather plodding) and the slow build up of atmosphere and suspense. The actors have done a credible job in their respective roles - newcomers, as well as veteran actors bring depth to their characters and this results in a fine production. My main complaint is the audio and picture quality - the sound is not altogether clear, and the picture quality is reminiscent of movies made in the 70s where the images lack sharpness and clarity. Other than that, this is a wonderful ghost story, perfect for families.
