Experience three spine-tingling tales of terror in Ghost Stories – a clever and chilling new vision in horror from the UK, brought to you by IFC Midnights!
A debunker of all things 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. Will they make a believer of him yet?

“★★★★. This triptych of horror tales is presided over with assurance and some seriously mordant wit by Jeremy Dyson and Andy Nyman.” – Philip De Semlyen, Time Out
“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.” – Jordan Crucchiola, New York Magazine/Vulture
“Packed with jump scares, cryptic clues, eerie beings, references to other horror fare and stand-alone, head-shaking weirdness… the movie is an entertainingly creepy little chill ride laced with psychodrama.” – Anita Katz, San Francisco
“Ghost Stories is nothing if not nostalgic: for old-fashioned creepshows that send a mordant chill down the spine, shadows as sinister as the specters within them, and audiences freshly eager to peer into both.” – Isaac Feldberg, Boston Globe
