  • @ifcmidnight’s latest and greatest starts its theatrical run in Boston now thru May 3rd!
Experience three spine-tingling tales of terror to haunt your dreams! A debunker of all things paranormal, Professor Phillip Goodman (Andy Nyman) has devoted his life to exposing phony psychics and fraudulent supernatural shenanigans on his television show, “Psychic Cheats.” His skepticism is put to the test, however, when he is challenged to explain a file of three chilling, inexplicable cases: a night watchman (Paul Whitehouse) haunted by terrifying visions as he patrols an abandoned asylum; an edgy young man (Alex Lawther, The Imitation Game, TV’s “Black Mirror”) involved in a hellish car accident deep in the woods at night; and a wealthy former banker (Martin Freeman, Black Panther, The Hobbit, TV’s “Sherlock”) visited by the poltergeist spirit of his unborn child. 
Even scarier: each of these macabre stories seems to have a sinister connection to Professor Goodman’s own life. Will they make a believer of him yet? Expert sound design ups the tension in this unnervingly eerie, genuinely scary film. Written and directed by Jeremy Dyson and Andy Nyman.
