About the Film
Having recovered from a shattering emotional breakdown, college professor Ben Marshall (Ed Stoppard) relocates to the countryside with his wife (Sophia Myles) and young son (Isaac Andrews), hoping for a fresh start. He has a teaching job lined up and a new home, Blackwood House to move into; things finally look to be going Ben’s way. Until, that is, he starts to feel that something isn’t quite right in the house. Finding himself plagued by ghostly visions, Ben discovers the house holds a dark secret and he becomes obsessed with uncovering the truth behind a disturbing local mystery that could put the lives of his family in danger. His investigation leads him to the sinister local gamekeeper Jack (Russell Tovey) and the ex-paratrooper vicar, Father Patrick (Paul Kaye), but trouble escalates when an old friend Dominic (Greg Wise) and his beautiful young girlfriend (Joanna Vanderham) enter his life. A modern update on the classic British ghost story, Blackwood is an atmospheric psychological chiller that will keep you gripped as it twists and turns its way towards its startling conclusion.
A tidy thriller
A nice play on the classic english thriller with echo of The Shining also.
