The Green Man[04/11/90] (1990)

Film details


Adapted from the story by Kingsley Amis. Maurice Allington continues to have some disturbing encounters with the supernatural, and determined to find out more about Dr. Underhill, he unearths the man's diaries in a Cambridge college library and discovers that he had dabbled in the occult and ravished several young girls after putting them in trance. A note left by Underhill in his diary hints at an important part of his "magic" being buried with him, and Maurice takes Joyce to the graveyard to help him dig up the body, and finds a pagan silver object in a box. The ghost again wants to make contact with Maurice, although his daughter-in-law, the only one who believes in his sightings, thinks it is getting dangerous.
