MR. CORBETT'S GHOST - Paul Scofield, Mark Farmer [1986]



Circa 1767, in a Dickensian atmosphere of a small English town, in the midst of New Year’s eve, Ben, a young apothecary’s apprentice, is kept working late by his cruel master,
Mr. Corbett (Paul Scofield).

And Ben wishes him dead, no less. Can Hate alone induce the death of another man? For Ben, hatred never seemed so real as he unconsciously collects all the right ingredients for murder, coupled with the encounter of a mysterious man (John Huston) who bargains with Souls.

After the sudden death of his master, Ben is less certain to whom he now belongs, as he is either haunted by Mr. Corbett’s Ghost or by his very alive new master, the Collector of Souls...

A classic Christmas Ghost story.
