Movie Info

Professor Phillip Goodman (Andy Nyman), psychologist and arch-skeptic, has his rationality tested to the hilt when he stumbles across a long-lost file containing details of three terrifying 'hauntings'. Shaken by what he reads, Goodman embarks on a mission to find rational explanations for these ghostly stories. As Goodman investigates, he meets three tormented people, each with a tale more frightening, uncanny and inexplicable than the last. Night-watchman Tony Matthews (Paul Whitehouse) had a horrifying encounter in an empty warehouse and it has haunted him for years. Teenager Simon Rifkind (Alex Lawther) took a late night drive that has rendered him unable to sleep. Mike Priddle (Martin Freeman), a brash banker, has had his worldview shaken to the core by unquiet spirits that apparently inhabit his otherwise perfect existence. As Goodman digs into their stories, his carefully maintained and rational world starts to dissolve around him. Is it a trick of the mind or are darker forces at work? Gradually Goodman is drawn towards the unearthing of a long-buried secret that will pull his life, and everything he thought he knew, apart.

Critic Reviews for Ghost Stories

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (1)

Ghost Stories is a witty and well-crafted love letter to old-school horror tropes.

What could be the best horror film of the year is ingeniously crafted with twists and turns you don't see coming.

So agile is Dyson & Nyman's conversion of their own materials from stage to screen, so spookily evocative, & ultimately disorienting, their use of multiple locations, that viewers ... will be unable to discern how this could ever have been performed live

October 10, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Ghost Stories reconciles its audiences with some of the old horror shows of yesteryears, think Tales of The Unexpected or even the earlier episodes of The Twilight Zone, while injecting some much needed humour to the proceedings.

By keeping things simple and playing to its strengths, Ghost Stories remains an exhilarating and entertaining experience.

Dyson and Nyman might not have a smash the size of the stage version of "Ghost Stories" on their hands, but they've more than done it justice, and there'll certainly be a willing, horror-friendly audience ready to jump out of their skins for this.
