Altitude inks key pre-sale on Martin Freeman chiller 'Ghost Stories'
Exclusive: The Woman In Black distributor Tmg/Concorde picks up thriller for Germany.

Tele München/Concorde has snapped up all German rights to Altitude Film Sales’ chiller Ghost Stories.

The pact marks the first collaboration between the two companies. Tmg/Concorde previously did well in Germany with similarly pitched horror The Woman In Black.

Martin Freeman And George MacKay Will Spin A Yarn With Ghost Stories

Jeremy Dyson, best known for his screenwriting work on British TV series The League of Gentlemen, crafted a bona fide scarefest with 2010’s stage show Ghost Stories in tandem with co-writer Andy Nyman. More than half a decade later and Dyson and Nyman are primed to reunite once more, this time to transition the play from the boards to the silver screen.

That’s according to Screen International, revealing that the production has already tapped Sherlock and The Hobbit actor Martin Freeman along with George MacKay. They’ll star opposite Nyman himself, who assumed the role of Professor Phillip Goodman in the original stage show. Described as a “professor of psychology and arch-skeptic,” Goodman is a character that has “rationality tested to the hilt when he receives a letter apparently from beyond the grave.” Very spooky indeed.

What really drives home the fear factor for Nyman’s character is that

Seven Classic TV Horror Movies

By Erin Lashley, MoreHorror.com

When Michael Calls - 1972

Helen begins receiving phone calls from a troubled child who claims to be her nephew Michael. The problem is that Michael died fifteen years ago.

Phone calls from beyond the grave are bad enough, and these sound mighty eerie, if you are affected by sounds in horror films the way that I am. But what really has the potential to be chilling is the idea that, if it’s not a ghost calling, then someone has to be absolutely batshit crazy to perpetrate a hoax like this. Not only that, but they’ve managed to coerce a living child into making the phone calls.

Michael Douglas is here in an early role, and if you’re a fan of Falling Down then you know that he does disturbed characters very well.

When Michael Calls stars Ben Gazzara, Elizabeth Ashley, and Michael Douglas,

Rip Doctor Who Companion Caroline John (1940 – 2012)

It is with great sadness that we must announce the passing of actress Caroline John, who passed away on the 5th June.

John is best remembered for her role as Dr. Liz Shaw, assistant to Jon Pertwee’s Third Doctor in Doctor Who throughout the show’s 1970 Season (the first featuring Pertwee in the role, and also the first to be broadcast in colour).

John leaves behind a great legacy of work away from Doctor Who. Roles included extensive work with the National Theatre and the Royal Shakespeare Company, as well as 2003’s Love Actually, 1989’s The Woman In Black, and guest stints in Casualty, Midsomer Murders, and Agatha Christie’S Poirot (wherein she met her husband, actor Geoffrey Beevers, who went on to play the Master opposite Tom Baker in Doctor Who).

Whilst only a regular on Doctor Who for one season, John has continued to be regularly involved
