Returning to Scotland for the first time in years stirs up uneasy memories for Adam Snow (Douglas Henshall). He longs for the beautiful Alice (Louise Lombard), wife of his client, and faces the realisation that he has barely been present for his fragile brother Hugo (Cal MacAnich), who is suffering a mental breakdown. While visiting Alice, Adam develops a fascination for a formerly majestic mansion nearby, Raven's End. Seeing this as a chance to be closer to Alice, as well as to his brother, he decides to buy Raven's End and to finally put down roots.
While working on the renovation and secretly planning a new life with Alice, Adam is plagued by haunting dreams, visions and visits from a ghostly child. Fearing he may be suffering from the same fate as his brother, Adam is determined to untangle the truth and excise the spirit from his life. But his coming to Raven's End has set in motion a chain of sinister events linked to his past and a painful secret to which Adam's family holds the key.

Awful - A Ghost Story: The Small Hand review by JO

Spoiler Alert

The script was so flawed how would anyone buy that house and who on earth would remain there having already lost relatives. Just not realistic. I also thought some of the acting left much to be desired by one of the actors in a lead role.

No subtitles - A Ghost Story: The Small Hand review by SL

Spoiler Alert

Nobody with a hearing problem can watch this. It's 2021 and there's no subtitles on this, I quite fancied adding it to my list but no chance of that.

Tepid ghost story. - A Ghost Story: The Small Hand review by NP

Spoiler Alert

This is a surprisingly flat adaption of the Susan Hill story, in which the sweeping locations come first, most of the acting comes a distant second and sadly, the plot doesn’t really get past the starting block.

It’s very difficult to engage with the characters. There’s not much to them, and the playing is often stilted. The scares are occasionally effective, but when the manifest ‘ghost’ is a very physical being – and an irritating bully rather than a demonic spirit to boot - there’s nothing to elicit the mildest chill.

What a shame this is, when the mood sets us up for grand things – slow, lingering camera work, a minimalist, darkly ambient score and a stunning location. Effective dressing, but barely anything to hang them on. Only Neve McIntosh puts in a committed performance. My score is 4 out of 10.
