Even the Supernanny could be excused for skipping the governess gig at Thornfield Hall. The house is a gloomy gothic pile, the other servants are strange and the boss ... well, let's just say Mr. Rochester has other things on his mind. But the orphaned and impoverished Jane Eyre has little choice but to take the job, thereby setting into motion not only one of the greatest romances of English literature, but a horror story that would spook Stephen King.

Adapted by Robert Kauzlaric
Directed by Paul S. Holmquist
The Moonstone, an Indian diamond steeped in a history of violence and mysticism, is stolen from Rachel Verinder’s sitting room, and no one in her household is above suspicion.

This thrilling mystery, regarded as the first detective novel in the English language, is re-imagined by the award-winning adaptor and director of The Island of Dr. Moreau and Neverwhere.
