Peter Capaldi is a BRILLIANT actor and the stories are both excellent. Don't Look Now is troubling. The Birds is terrifying. Du Maurier did a great job on both.

This was the very first horror film I ever saw. I had nightmares over the guy in his pajamas with his eyes pecked out. This story in written form is fairly good. Apocalypse fans should love it. I would have liked some explanation for why the birds did what they did and he ending was a little abrupt.
DON'T LOOK NOW
For paranormal fans only. I did not find it scary and the ending was silly.

Good tales, well written and well read. Spoiled (for me anyway) by incidental music which adds nothing and intrudes.

the first time i was permitted to stay up late and watch "grown ups telly" was when there was a Hitchcock double bill on. i don't recall the second film, but remember clearly sitting through the psychological horror of "the birds". i was about 8 or 10, and already well versed in Stephen King, and Tolkein, and i still recall the vividness of my loungeroom snd our giant television in the corner near the fireplace. i was often wary of that fireplace, but for other reasons.
hearing the book, and inspiration for the film, for the first time, i was mesmerised by the imagery, and how much of it was both lost, yet captured, by the film.
Capaldi's narration is suberb. his characterisation is wonderfully considered, and very much in touch with the narrative of each tale. the only real negative i can note is the terrible music placement and the hotrible way it is mixed.
Tense, haunting stories that grip you and have you hooked until their end. Skillfully told by Mr Capaldi, whose talents as an actor and storyteller shine.
