Ghost Stories remains one of the scariest stage shows ever seen and IFC will release the film adaptation of Andy Nyman and Jeremy Dyson’s smash hit phenomenon in theaters and on VOD April 20, 2018.
Starring Martin Freeman, Paul Whitehouse, as well as Nyman, this unforgettable screen adaptation terrifies in a whole new thrilling and chilling dimension. Meredith Borders reviewed the film out of SXSW calling it “theatrical horror at its best.”
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.”
