Ghostwatch

Stars: Michael Parkinson, Sarah Greene, Craig Charles, Mike Smith, Gillian Bevan | Written by Stephen Volk | Directed by Lesley Manning

Back in 1992, in the halcyon days before Paranormal ActivityThe Blair Witch Project and Most Haunted, the BBC used Michael Parkinson to terrify the nation in a one-off TV special called Ghostwatch. Viewers were invited to watch as real-life presenters including Sarah Greene and Craig Charles investigated the spooky goings on in ‘Britain’s most haunted house’ in the hopes of either a few cheap thrills (mostly provided by a hammily hateable Charles) or the uncovering of a hoax, but over 90 minutes they got a hell of a lot more.

Let’s get the bad out of the way first: Ghostwatch has not been treated well by either time or a DVD release. The twenty years since its first broadcast have seen a meteoric rise and fall of found-footage films »
