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?

Critic Reviews for Ghost Stories

All Critics (65) | Top Critics (10)

It's still a horror movie, all right, but the nature of the fright is less supernatural, and more solid.

April 24, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

With a movie title like Ghost Stories, you'd expect a few decent frights.

April 22, 2018 | Rating: C | Full Review…

Ghost Stories doesn't reinvent the wheel in any way, but it owes a debt to films that modern genre filmmakers might have forgotten.

April 20, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

It's a cheeky, devilish anthology of three horror stories tied together by a central mystery, and pound for pound, it's one of the creepiest movies of the year so far.

April 20, 2018 | Full Review…

Like the films it pays homage to, "Ghost Stories" is more classy than chilling; but each of its dark, twisty tales is smartly staged.

April 19, 2018 | Full Review…

Managing to feel at once painfully slow and bafflingly truncated, this creaky triptych of not-so-scary tales is a tame curiosity of movie nostalgia.
