The Green ManMaurice Allington (Albert Finney) is the promiscuous and alcoholic owner of a quaint British B&B, the Green Man Inn. In the hope of attracting customers, he entertains his guests with ghostly tales, spreading rumours that a notorious 17th-century occult scientist haunts the hotel. But he and his guests are in for a shock when they realise they’re in the presence of some very real and malevolent other-worldly spirits.

Both a sexual farce and ghostly thriller, this BAFTA-winning 1990 miniseries is based on the Kingsley Amis novel of the same name and comes to DVD courtesy of Simply Media on 5 October. To win a copy, enter details below.
