Description

Adapted from the stage play of the same name by Jeremy Dyson and Andy Nyman, Ghost Stories follows Dr. Phillip Goodman (played by Nyman himself), a Professor of Parapsychology who crosses paths with his former mentor, ex-parapsychologist Charles Cameron. Upon their reunion, Goodman tells three stories of supernatural events that involve a night guard, a businessman, and a teen driver with car trouble.

Like the stage play, Ghost Stories is modeled on Goodman’s reflections on the three unsolved cases woven together to form a hauntingly suspenseful and introspective ride. The travelers bravely face the darkness as the interlaced stories reveal a central theme—guilt. Armed with a stellar cast that includes Martin Freeman, Alex Lawther and Paul Whitehouse, Ghost Stories is a horror trek that explores the darkest reaches of the natural and supernatural.

Director Biography

Musician and screenwriter Jeremy Dyson and actor-writer-director Andy Nyman first presented Ghost Stories as a stage play on the West End, in which Nyman also portrayed Dr. Phillip Goodman. Having taken the story to film, the screen adaption their first feature-film collaboration together.
