Movie Info

John Martin is on trial for his life. Facing him, the infamous 'hanging judge', George Jeffreys. This is not a cut-and-dry murder case, however.

Critic Reviews for Martin's Close

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (2)

Mark Gatiss's adaptation of MR James's tale Martin's Close looked perfect on paper... but it wasn't quite strong enough to hatch out in your brain at 3am.

The grand unveiling of the ghost, held back until the end (in the classic fashion), was rather less memorable than a fruity performance from the living.
