Andy Newman and Jeremy Dyson’s Ghost Stories pays homage to production company Amicus’s portmanteau horror films of the sixties (cult genre movie such as Dr Terror’s House of Horrors, Torture Garden, The House That Dripped Blood andVault of Horror), as paranormal investigator Professor Goodman investigates a trio of real supernatural sightings and the surviving witnesses recount their nightmarish tales.
Adapted from their successful stage play of the same, writers and directors Andy Newman (best known for working with illusionist Derren Brown) and Jeremy Dyson (The League of Gentlemen) have created a film that owes much to the British supernatural gothic horror movies of the sixties and seventies. With a cast that includes Martin Freeman, Derren Brown and Paul Whitehouse, Ghost Stories is an uncanny pleasure.
“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.” – Vulture
