Movie Info

Experience three spine-tingling tales of terror to haunt your dreams. A debunker of all thing paranormal, Professor Phillip Goodman (Andy Nyman) has devoted his life to exposing phony psychics and fraudulent supernatural shenanigans on his own television show. His skepticism is put to the test, however, when he receives a file of three chilling, inexplicable cases: a night watchman (Paul Whitehouse) haunted by disturbing visions as he patrols an abandoned asylum; an edgy young man (Black Mirror's Alex Lawther) involved in a hellish car accident deep in the woods; and a wealthy former banker (Sherlock's Martin Freeman) visited by the poltergeist spirit of his unborn child. Even scarier: each of these macabre stories seems to have sinister connection to Professor Goodman's own life. WIll they make a believer of him yet?

Audience Reviews for Ghost Stories

  • Jan 26, 2019
    Three ghost stories in a frame narrative that starts out slowly and what seems to be unnecessarily complicated. The devil is in the details, though and ultimately there is a pay-off, maybe even warranting another viewing or two. As for the ghost stories, they are wonderfully unpleasant and have quite a few jump scares. Overall, and without entering spoiler territory, I appreciated what the movie attempted and was pretty entertained, but somehow it could have achieved even more in every aspect.

    What you've got here are three relatively intriguing horror concepts that end just as they are getting interesting held together by a pretty mediocre central story.
