Professor Phillip Goodman, psychologist and arch-sceptic, 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 had a horrifying encounter in an empty warehouse and it has haunted him for years. Teenager Simon Rifkind took a late-night drive that has rendered him unable to sleep. Mike Priddle, 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.
Starring Andy Nyman, Paul Whitehouse, Alex Lawther and Martin Freeman, Ghost Stories will be released in the UK on April 23, and in the U.S. sometime in 2018.
