Ghost Stories

You say you don’t believe in ghosts? Well, think again...

The team behind the hit London stage play bring their diabolical creation to the big screen, with suitably chilling results. Who doesn’t love a good ghost story? Well, settle down kiddies as Andy Nyman and Jeremy Dyson have a trio of humdingers up their sleeves, just waiting to give you sleepless nights. Nyman plays Phillip Goodman, an academic and professional sceptic out to debunk claims of the supernatural. But when an encounter with a former parapsychologist leads him to three unsolved cases of the Occult, his whole belief system – not to mention his sanity – is thrown into question. An affectionate throwback to classic Brit anthology chillers such as Dead of Night and the Amicus productions of the 1970s, this imaginative and playful portmanteau is undoubtedly the product of two horror-obsessed minds. And it’s bloody terrifying too. Hang onto your popcorn – being scared has never been this much fun.
