With the film already out in the UK, Andy Nyman and Jeremy Dyson’s Ghost Stories is gearing up to hit US shores this weekend. Ahead of then, we have this stunning new poster, which incorporates the most used image from the film into a wild-eyed face in a quite brilliant way.
Based on Nyman and Dyson’s Olivier-nominated stage play of the same name, the film sees Nyman reprise his role of psychologist and skeptic Professor Goodman, who has his beliefs tested when he stumbles across three files detailing real-life hauntings. Also starring are Martin Freeman, Alex Lawther and Brit comedy veteran Paul Whitehouse. Nyman and Dyson co-directed the film from their own script.
“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.”
IFC Midnight release Ghost Stories in the US on April 20th. It is out now in the UK from Lionsgate.
