Whistle and I'll Come to You is a chilling drama film from 2010, directed by Andy de Emmony and based on the classic ghost story by M.R. James. The movie stars John Hurt as a retired academic named James Parkin, who takes a holiday to an isolated seaside town in England. The film is not a direct adaptation of James' short story, but rather a modern retelling that uses the same basic premise and some of the key elements of the original tale. The story follows Parkin as he arrives at a creepy old hotel where he plans to spend a few days golfing and exploring.

As Parkin settles into the hotel, strange things begin to happen. He discovers an ancient whistle buried in the sand, which he takes back to his room. Later that night, while he is asleep, he is awakened by the sound of the whistle blowing. His room is filled with a powerful gust of wind, and he sees a spectral figure standing at the foot of his bed.

Throughout the rest of the film, Parkin becomes increasingly obsessed with the whistle and the ghostly presence that seems to be haunting him. He begins to experience terrifying nightmares and hallucinations, and he becomes convinced that the whistle has summoned an otherworldly being that is out to get him.

As the story unfolds, we learn more about Parkin's past and the events that have led up to his current situation. We also meet some of the other characters in the hotel, including the kindly Mrs. Drablow (played by Gemma Jones) and the enigmatic hotel owner (played by Lesley Sharp).

The film is a slow-burning, atmospheric horror story that relies on tension and suspense rather than jump scares or gore. It's a character-driven piece that explores themes of guilt, regret, and the afterlife. John Hurt delivers a powerful performance as Parkin, conveying the character's sense of isolation and desperation.

The visuals in the film are stunning, with beautiful shots of the seaside and the eerie hotel setting. The sound design is also noteworthy, with the titular whistle playing a central role in creating a sense of unease and foreboding.

While Whistle and I'll Come to You is not a perfect film, it's a compelling and unsettling horror story that will appeal to fans of classic ghost stories and psychological thrillers. It's a moody and atmospheric tale that stays with you long after the credits roll.

Whistle and I'll Come to You is a 2010 horror movie with a runtime of 52 minutes. It has received mostly positive reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.5.
