Ghost Stories

Professor Philip Goodman (Andy Nyman, Peaky Blinders) is a TV investigator that specializes in debunking psychics and supernatural mysteries. However, after a strange encounter with his childhood idol Charles Cameron, he is tasked with three unsolved cases that have vexed his hero and shaken his faith that the there is nothing in the great beyond. Told in the classic ‘60s horror anthology style of Britain’s famed Ealing Studios (Dead of Night), Amicus Productions (The House that Dripped Blood), and the legendary Hammer Films, Andy Nyman and Jeremy Dyson have adapted their stage play to tell the tales of a night watchman at an abandoned prison (Paul Whitehouse, The Death of Stalin), a teen lost in the woods (Alex Lawther, The Imitation Game), and a banker on the moors (Martin Freeman, The Hobbit). Utilizing a modern landscape of desaturated and crumbling rural locales, Dyson and Nyman fill every impossibly dark crevice of their film with dread, ratcheting up the tension like the tightening of restraints on a mental asylum bed. And when the final twist and turn comes, it will leave you blue in the face.

UK, 2017, 98 minutes, Directed by Jeremy Dyson & Andy Nyman

  • “It's a cheeky, devilish anthology of three horror stories tied together by a central mystery, and pound for pound, it's one of the creepiest movies of the year so far.”

    – Jordan Crucchiolla, NEW YORK MAGAZINE/VULTURE
  • “Like the films it pays homage to, 'Ghost Stories' is more classy than chilling; but each of its dark, twisty tales is smartly staged.”

    – Noel Murray, LOS ANGELES TIMES
  • “Alex Lawther delivers a "Blair Witch/Insidious" level of terrified that becomes a new yardstick to measure horror movie acting against.”

    – Roger Moore, MOVIE NATION
  • “Jeremy Dyson and Andy Nyman's remarkably ambiguous Ghost Stories is unconventional, structurally bonkers and bloody-freakin'-brilliant.”

    – Matt Donato, SLASHFILM
  • “This is the screen equivalent of a fairground ride on the ghost train. The scarier it gets, the more fun it becomes.”

    – Geoffrey Macnab, INDEPENDENT (UK)
  • “By keeping things simple and playing to its strengths, Ghost Stories remains an exhilarating and entertaining experience.”
