Last Friday, Andy Nyman and Jeremy Dyson’s horror film, Ghost Stories, opened stateside, solely in New York City, and grossed nearly $13,000 from a single theatre, prompting many to believe that the success will translate into an expanded release in other major cities in the coming weeks.
Starring Martin Freeman (Black Panther, Sherlock) and Alex Lawther (The Imitation Game, Black Mirror), alongside co-writer and co-director Nyman (The League of Gentlemen), Ghost Stories shadows Professor Goodman (Nyman), a psychologist and skeptic, “who has his rationality tested” upon investigating “three terrifying hauntings.”
A production of Warp Films, the studio behind several menacing titles, including Ben Wheatley’s 2011 psychological horror Kill List and Justin Kurzel’s (Assassin’s Creed) brutal crime drama Snowtown, Ghost Stories was the subject of high praise following its screening at the South by Southwest Film Festival, and the kudos continued to pour in for the flick upon its official release. Currently, it sits at 83% certified fresh on the review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes. Not bad, right?
After last week saw a tense snippet from the film surface, which had an unseen presence tease a man throughout the corridors of a dilapidated building, we’ve now got another clip from the Nyman and Dyson-directed anthology film and you can check it out up above.
Entitled “We’re Trying to Talk,” the sixty-second video sees Nyman and an eerie Lawther about to discuss the particulars of the latter’s haunting. From what we’ve seen in these excerpts and judging by the film’s strong critical reception thus far, Ghost Stories is certainly worthy of the praise it’s receiving and is now in theaters, well, a theater, and on VOD. If you haven’t yet seen it, be sure to rectify that as soon as you can.
