The 'Classic" M.R.James experience

Roy Macready's performance is 'old school..' the way these tales would have been told around a roaring fire,
in a dark room... late on Christmas day. Macready has pitch perfect ability to represent the era of the stories,
and the voicing that communicates the fear and horror without emoting... just perfection.
I love M.R. James and there are many interpretations of his work, but this is the original.
