Despite appearances, ‘Ghost Stories’ is no by-the-numbers affair.

Writing partners Andy Nyman and Jeremy Dyson are likely not names you’d know though you’re likely familiar with their work. Nyman’s an actor who’s worked on The League of Gentlemen, The Brothers Bloom, and Despicable Me 3, whereas Dyson’s spent most of his time behind the camera writing for The League of Gentlemen, Tracey Ullman’s Show, and Psychobitches. After all their hard work in projects largely comical it’s going to be the surprise chiller Ghost Stories, a horror feature they developed from their own stage production, that’s going to break them onto the big stage in the U.S.  Equally multi-faceted and straight-forward in its execution, Ghost Stories will leave you questioning everything. Like going to a magic show, Nyman and Dyson present a tale whose intent is clearly stated – the brain sees what it wants to see – yet despite that warning, the twists, turns, and thrills within Ghost Stories manage to illicit genuine scares that bend audience’s expectations in delightful ghoulish ways.
