I remember watching this as a child and watched it again last year. It is still just as unnerving. Maybe it’s the memory of it that bothers me so much but whatever the reason it’s a very powerful show.
Dir: Lesley Manning, 1992
Okay, I know it’s not “technically” a film but the furore and controversy surrounding the showing and the subsequent refusal to ever broadcast the show again, meant that, I felt, it warranted inclusion.
And has been shown several times at the British Film Institute.
Stephen Volk’s television drama is one of, if not THE, most controversial programmes ever broadcast.
Ghostwatch was a one off live broadcast about an investigation into a supposedly haunted house.
Michael Parkinson and Mike Smith were in the studio taking phone calls and messages while his wife Sarah Greene and Craig Charles were on location at the house.
The occupants of the house was a mother and her two teenage daughters.
They reported instances of unexplained banging, chills and other, usual, activity associated with poltergeists.
Throughout the broadcast, the supernatural occurences got worse and threatened the lives of all involved.
