UNEXPLAINED LAUGHTER ('89, uk)

Post by Wallace on Sat Apr 02, 2016 12:48 pm

Quite good made for tv movie.
A cynical journalist (Diana Rigg) and her female publisher friend  vacation in Wales in a remote cottage. She hears laughter in the cottage and surrounding landscape whilst others do not. When she asks a local if the cottage has a history or is haunted she gets the ambiguous answer that most cottages in Wales are haunted.
Not so much a scarry story - and certainly not horror - but gentle comedy-ominousness , if you can imagine such a combination. The errie laughter is almost incidental to the story here.  Nice mood and you just gotta use an oboe in an slow-going, atmospheric  supernatural story. Some intelligent dialogue too.
