  • Information for the movie :The Wyvern Mystery The Wyvern Mystery: A woman (Naomi Watts) contends with disturbing nightmares and the diabolical brother (Jack Davenport) of her new husband (Iain Glen).

    Although this films aspire to Gothic horror, the villains are quite human and operate with some quite human motives in The Wyvern Mystery. It's the tale of a young girl taken in by the local squire Derek Jacobi, treated well enough, but knowing she's not at the same level as his two blood kin sons Iain Glen and Jack Davenport.

    As she grows up and turns into the beautiful Naomi Watts, she falls for Glen and they marry and arouse Jacobi's ire. In fact her father was Jacobi's enemy in life and his idea of revenge was to wed and bed her and not out of love. That his own son has upset his plans makes him turn on Glen as well.

    Hell hath no fury like a squire scorned. They have to flee and after that tragedy follows them around. And it's not all of Jacobi's making.

    This Victorian story first turned up on British TV and later in America on Public Television's Mystery. The performances are first rate and the outstanding one is Naomi Watts who grows in strength and character throughout an ordeal of a life.

  • The foremost teller of scary stories in his day and a profound influence on both the novelists and filmmakers of the 20th century, Anglo-Irish author JOSEPH THOMAS SHERIDAN LE FANU (1814 1873) has, sadly, fallen out of scholarly and popular favor, and unfairly so. To this day, contemporary readers who happen across his works praise his talent for weaving a tense literary atmosphere tinged by the supernatural and bolstered by hints of ambiguous magic. An exceptional example of the sensation novel a genre that was wildly popular in the Victorian era, with its focus on lurid crime invading previously cheerful, ordinary, and domestic places this 1869 classic gives us a rural estate in 1820s England, a happy new bride, and an ancient myth of a wyvern dragon to spoil the tranquility. Or perhaps there s a more rational and yet more sinister explanation for the distress afflicting poor Alice Fairfield, nee Maybell, lady of Carwell Grange? Redolent of future works including the tales of Sherlock Holmes and the thrillers of Stephen King, The Wyvern Mystery continues to enthrall 21st-century readers. With a series of new editions of Le Fanu s works, Cosimo is proud to reintroduce modern book lovers to the writings of the early master of suspense fiction who pioneered the concept of psychological horror.
