Return to Glennascaul – Orson Welles’ Irish Horror Short

The man himself, Orson Welles dabbled in horror with this short Return to Glennascaul, shot right here in Dublin

Filmed during a break from his production of Othello, Orson starred in this 23 minute ghostly short, directed by Hilton Edwards, Welles plays himself on a break from shooting Othello, driving along a deserted road he encounters a hitchhiker with a ghostly story.

A storyline you may have heard before around a fire and a pint but worth looking at nonetheless for it’s inherant creepiness and injection of humour.
Unfortunately it’s hard to acquire without subtitles online, if you have a better link please share.
