Martin Freeman in Full UK Trailer for Anthology Horror 'Ghost Stories'

"You don't have to have your life ruled by superstitious fear." A brand new, full-lenth UK trailer has arrived for the new anthology supernatural horror film titled Ghost Stories. We initially posted three teasers for this last year after the film premiered at the London Film Festival in the fall. Based on the long-running British horror stage show created by English magician Andy Nyman, this is about a psychologist and arch-skeptic named Professor Phillip Goodman who investigates three terrifying hauntings. Andy Nyman plays Goodman, and the rest of the ensemble cast includes Martin Freeman, Alex Lawther, Jill Halfpenny, Paul Whitehouse, Nicholas Burns, Kobna Holdbrook-Smith, Daniel Hill, Derren Brown, and Ryan Oliva.

Ghost Stories review – Martin Freeman and Paul Whitehouse shine in dreamlike spookfest

Co-directed by Andy Nyman and The League of Gentlemen’s Jeremy Dyson, this three-part portmanteau horror turns out a disturbing, atmospheric fable

Ghost Stories is a barnstormer of an entertainment, a fairground ride with dodgy brakes. It’s an anthology of creepy supernatural tales in the intensely English tradition of Amicus portmanteau movies from the 1960s, such as Dr Terror’s House of Horrors, or the Ealing classic Dead of Night. Each story is made individually stranger and tinglier by the way the film allows you to notice an overarching narrative between them, becoming increasingly visible through the uncanny accumulation of coincidental detail.

The film’s writer-directors Andy Nyman and Jeremy Dyson have adapted it from their colossally successful stage show: Nyman is the actor, writer and magician who has devised productions for Derren Brown; Jeremy Dyson is the actor, comedy writer and co-creator of The League of Gentlemen. I

Derren Brown's 11 best TV stunts

Craig Elvy Sep 27, 2017

The crazy world of Derren Brown is not without controversy and debate. Here we revisit 11 of the illusionist's most gripping TV stunts...

Being friends with Derren Brown must be simultaneously fascinating and utterly terrifying. A vastly intelligent natural performer with charisma and charm to spare, Derren has been confounding audiences with his brand of “magic, suggestion, psychology, misdirection and showmanship” for something approaching two decades and has successfully pulled-off a remarkable evolution from skilled street magician to performer of increasingly ambitious television events.

‘Derren Brown: Secret’ Theater Review: When Distraction Is Magic

‘Derren Brown: Secret’ Theater Review: When Distraction Is Magic
Have you ever wondered about the private lives of actors on stage? Probably. Have you ever wondered about the private lives of the people sitting around you in the audience? Probably not. Those strangers sitting around you in the dark are the subject of the new illusionist show “Derren Brown: Secret,” which opened Tuesday at Off Broadway’s Atlantic Theatre Company. This marks the British illusionist’s American debut, and he goes way beyond the usual brand of magic here. The Playbill bio calls what Brown does a “unique brand of mind control, suggestion, showmanship and illusion.” Left off that list is.

This review contains spoilers.

In Thomas HarrisThe Silence Of The Lambs, Hannibal Lecter tells Clarice Starling “Nothing happened to me […] I happened. You can’t reduce me to a set of influences.” It’s an elegant, invincible line, one that waves away the tricks of their trades as psychiatrist and FBI agent, and paints Lecter as pure evil.

Twenty-five years later, Harris scrapped all that to explain in Hannibal Rising that Lecter is what he is because Nazis ate his sister.

Derren Brown: ‘You’re only sad if you tell yourself you’re sad’

After the breakup of a long relationship, the magician found himself pondering how to be happy – and he’s found that it’s simply a trick of the mind

Derren Brown has written a book on happiness, so it seems reasonable to assume he is something of an expert. He says he is happy, and judging by the bibliography, he has definitely read a lot on the subject. But I’m not sure the two of us agree on what happiness is. His book, Happy, advocates “contentment”, “tranquility”, a “considered” life. It all feels so unexciting.

“It doesn’t sound very joyful, does it?” Brown agrees. “But would you press the button for consistently joyful, which is clearly not real or a bit mad or exhausting, or would you press the button for a robust sense of calmness and balance?” I think, in that situation, I would hunt around for a third button,

Horror Channel’s FrightFest landed in London today, and they kicked things off with an announcement by Jeremy Dyson and Andy Nyman that they’re taking their stage play Ghost Stories to the big screen.

Now You See Me 2 review: “An enjoyable character ensemble.”

Now You See Me 2 review: The Horsemen return, but does the magic from the 2013 surprise hit? Now You See Me 2 review

Now You See Me 2 is the unfortunately titled (how about Now You Don’t?) follow-up to 2013’s surprise hit. At a time when big budget superhero films and animated kids movies still dominate, it was nice to see a heist film that employed magic and good humour to get audiences excited. The ensemble cast also helped, and most of them have returned for this satisfactory sequel.

Set a year after the original, J. Daniel Atlas (Jesse Eisenberg) and the other Horsemen Merritt (Woody Harrelson) and Jack (Dave Franco), are living in hiding awaiting instructions from their leader Dylan (Mark Ruffalo) who is still working undercover in the FBI although suspicion does surround him.

'Dangerous' Derren Brown suffocation trick should not have aired in daytime

Stunt on UKTV’s Watch – which also included repeated swearing – was unsuitable for 9am broadcast when children could be watching, says watchdog

A show featuring a Derren Brown stunt broke broadcasting rules by showing the illusionist suffocating himself with a plastic bag when children could easily have seen and copied it.

Media regulator Ofcom launched an investigation into the programme, which featured a 14-minute segment where Brown suffocated himself and used the word “fuck” on multiple occasions.
