I always remember watching a ghost story with my mam when I was 14 and being scared witless by it but could only remember it had 2 kids with white faces and a hurdy gurdy. As soon as I saw this at Christmas I realised it was the very same one ! Not really scary to me any more, but it brought back a happy memory from long ago.
