Cult Movies

Preview: Ghost Stories (Bluray)

Based on Andy Nyman and Jeremy Dyson’s original Olivier nominated stage production, the same team have co-written and directed this adaptation for the big screen.

Starring Martin Freeman, Alex Lawther, Andy Nyman, Paul Whitehouse, and Kobna Holdbrook-Smith.

Phillip Goodman (Andy Nyman), 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.

A Note from Filmmakers Jeremy Dyson & Andy Nyman:

“To be able to now bring our own film to DVD and Blu-Ray so you can have it at home is yet another dream come true. As if making the movie wasn’t enough of a ‘gift from the gods’ to us, compiling the extras for this release has been incredible, too. We hope you enjoy the film and everything else in this package and that – some of you, at least –  will get to watch the film over and over and over again.”

The Blu-ray edition of GHOST STORIES is packed full of extras:

  • Reversible Sleeve
  • Limited Edition alternative poster by Graham Humphreys
  • 16-page Booklet, including notes from the filmmakers on ‘The Making of Ghost Stories – From Stage to Screen’; quotes from the cast about their roles; fun facts about the film; Andy Nyman’s Top Ten Scary Movies and Jeremy Dyson’s Top Ten Ghost Stories.
  • And Three New Special Features: Writer/Directors Jeremy Dyson & Andy Nyman give a feature length audio commentary; the cast and filmmakers interpret Rorschach test ink-blots in the hilarious: ‘The Rorschach Test’; and a featurette reveals ‘before and after’ scenes, showing things that the filmmakers missed during production and subsequently digitally removed ‘in post’, truly proving that ‘The Brain Sees What it Wants to See’
