UK ‘Ghost Stories’ Quad Warns to Be Careful What You Believe In

Ghost Stories remains one of the scariest stage shows ever seen and on Thursday, March 1st FrightFest kicks off with a special screening of Andy Nyman and Jeremy Dyson’s smash hit phenomenon. Starring Martin Freeman, Paul Whitehouse, as well as Nyman, this unforgettable screen adaptation terrifies in a whole new thrilling and chilling dimension. Lionsgate will be telling all three tales in the UK on April 13th, while IFC Midnight will be bringing it to the States in theaters and on VOD April 20, 2018.

Said to be one of the best British horror films in years, below find the official UK quad art that boasts the tagline: “Be careful what you believe in.”

Dyson (The League of Gentlemen) co-directs the supernatural thriller that’s based on the Olivier-nominated stage play of the same name. Nynam, who starred in the original theater production, co-directs and stars as Professor Goodman, a psychologist, and skeptic, who has his rationality tested when he stumbles across a long-lost file containing details of three terrifying hauntings. He then embarks on a mission to find rational explanations for the ghostly happenings.

Phillip Goodman, professor of psychology, arch-skeptic, the one-man ‘belief buster’ – has his rationality tested to the hilt when he receives a letter apparently from beyond the grave. His mentor Charles Cameron, the ‘original’ TV parapsychologist went missing fifteen years before, presumed dead and yet now he writes to Goodman saying that the pair must meet. Cameron, it seems, is still very much alive. And he needs Goodman to find a rational explanation for three stories that have shaken Cameron to his core. As Goodman investigates, he meets three haunted people, each with a tale more frightening, uncanny and inexplicable than the last.

    Love ghost films……..when they’re done right! Another thing is it’s an anthology film, these types of films are so love or hate for me cuz they promise all this shit and rarely deliver on it. Lastly MAYBE one story is decent out of the rest. I am intrigued by this but I’m not going all in, I don’t care how many quotes are on the poster!

      But dude…that is a LOT of quotes. And in BIG red letters too! Lol

      Nah, good idea being cautiously optimistic. It pays to be skeptical about anthologies, i’ve been burned before too (Tales of Halloween, i’m looking at you).

      However, fuck it, i’ll go all in. British gothic horror is my jam. Besides, someone has to set their expectations unreasonably high and set themselves up for disappointment. Might as well be me

  • Josh Gastronomicon Myers

    Phantoms, investigations, and Bilbo Baggins. This looks off…the…hook

    A hearty Hells yes from me!

    Totally agree, the vast majority of Tales was underwhelming, but the first one was decent. And the alien/friday the 13th one was stupid but gave me a chuckle. I remember not hating the halloween decoration battle as welll but the rest was awful.

    Haven’t seen XX yet but iv’e heard it’s a pretty mixed bag as well. Same with Holidays. Some were decent, the St Patrick’s day one was very “wtf did I just watch?”, but the majority of them just weren’t great.

    To be honest, the last anthology style movie I saw that I legitimately loved through and through was Trick R Treat, and I think that’s probably because the stories were intertwined, weren’t of inconsistent quality because it was a single director…And was a love letter to Halloween

    Plus, sexy werewolf orgy….growr

      Yeah I’ve said that before myself about anthologies having one director, might improve them a little. ‘Trick ‘r Treat’ was amazing, probably hands down the staple of how they should be done.

    Can’t WAIT for this!

    If it’s even a patch on the live show, I’ll be very happy! Chuffed to see Andy Nyman returning in his narrator role!

    Andy Nyman was the guy who had his leg cut off by a mantrap in Severance
