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.
We’ve already seen teasers for each of the three cases, but now have a full trailer that’s ridiculously scary. It looks like an anthology of sorts, only seamlessly strung together by the investigator. There are all sorts of chilling imagery to go along with spooky moments. This is said to be one of the best British horror films in years and is one of the top films to keep your eye out for in 2018.
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.”
