M.R. James Adaptations (TV & Film)

British academic M.R. James (1862 – 1936) wrote chilling ghost stories that placed malevolent supernatural entities into realistic settings. This became the blue print for the modern horror story. James's ideas and his ability to evoke a sense of believable dread still has a profound influence on modern writers and filmmakers.
This is a list of direct adaptations of James's work including animations, feature films, TV adaptions and low budget amateur shorts.

The Lost Will of Dr Rant - The Tractate Middoth
Night of the Demon - Casting the Runes
The Church - The Treasure of Abbot Thomas
Doctors Series 16 - Episode 124 - Whistle - 'Oh, Whistle, and I'll Come to You, My Lad'
La Stanza N. 13 - 'Number 13'
La Mezzatinta - 'The Mezzotint'
Play me a Note - 'Oh, Whistle, and I'll Come to You, My Lad'
