This classic Gothic tale from Irish author Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu tells the story of a young medical student and his cousin who move into a house together only to discover that it’s haunted by the vengeful ghost of a long-dead Judge. This spine-tingling story is rife with monstrous apparitions and redolent with ominous signs and portents, concerned not so much with its human inhabitants as with the house itself, the true main character of this supernatural short.
Jonathan Keeble’s eerily calm performance of "An Account of Some Strange Disturbances in Aungier Street" serves to accentuate all that’s uncanny about the contents of this creepy tale, his crisp, measured narration a surprisingly perfect fit for this ghastly masterpiece.
This is a story from The Moonlit Road collection.
These five 19th-century ghost stories from both sides of the Atlantic provide some of the best chills in the genre. Ambrose Bierce is well-known, but "To Let" by B. M. Croker and "The Upper Berth" also provide moments to tingle the spine, as does "An Account of Some Strange Disturbances" by Le Fanu. This collection, which is further enhanced by suitably chilling music, was originally released under the title Classic Chilling Tales 3.
