It was announced today that forthcoming British horror Ghost Stories will screen at Glasgow Film Festival as part of the Horror Channel Frightfest line-up. It seems only fitting then that a new trailer has also gone live.
The film is based on Andy Nyman and Jeremy Dyson’s original Olivier nominated stage production of the same name; the same team have co-written and directed this adaptation for the big screen. Nyman leads the cast, reprising his role as Professor Goodman, and is joined by the well-known faces of Martin Freeman and Paul Whitehouse for a trio of traumatising tales of the paranormal. Check out the trailer in full below, if you dare:
As you can see, Ghost Stories looks like it’s full of things that go bump in the night, and is almost guaranteed to give you nightmares. The film arrives in cinemas on the suitably spooky release date of Friday 13th April 2018.
Here’s a little more detail about the plot and a snazzy new poster too:
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.
Ghost Stories is released in UK cinemas on Friday 13th April 2018.
