“As the house comes into view, I have the most extraordinary feeling. I nearly turn and run, because I know I am going to come face to face with the seven of you. And that is when my dream turns into a nightmare…”

As a storm brews overhead, Architect Constance Craig arrives in the countryside at the house of Elliot Foley, prepared to get to work. Instead, she finds herself among a gathered ensemble of Elliot’s friends, all of whom Constance appears to know. In fact, Constance claims to dream about all of them, every night.

Although not all of the strangers are sure they believe this tale, it does come to light that each of them also has an unusual story to tell, even the skeptical psychiatrist Dr. Van Straaten. Soon, tales of doppelgängers, ghosts, and a ventriloquist dominated by his dummy fill the evening, all while Constance Craig awaits the descent from dream to nightmare…

Based on the 1946 film, Dead Of Night captures classic ghost stories in a thrilling, spine tingling and – yes, even humorous – presentation! Perfect for fans of The Woman In Black and 2:22 A Ghost Story.
