No. 6 Cinema, Portsmouth’s only independent filmhouse, screen 2017 British horror film Ghost Stories on Saturday 19th May, from 7:00pm.
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.
Andy Nyman also leads the cast, reprising his role as Professor Goodman alongside Paul Whitehouse (Alice in Wonderland, Harry & Paul, The Fast Show), Alex Lawther (Black Mirror, Old Boys, The Imitation Game) and Martin Freeman (the Hobbit franchise, Fargo, Sherlock).
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.
