A short ghost story for Halloween
It’s a brilliant story that I first heard when I was about eight years old and it scared the life out of me then. I like to think it’s based loosely on the legends of the Witches of Islandmagee (where it was filmed). The last Witch in Ireland was put on trial in Islandmagee half a mile away from the house where the film was shot and in fact the house where Mary Dunbar lived still stands. It is one of the most eerie places I have ever been.
