Desperate writer Gilliger Graham faces a stark ultimatum: write a hit novel or watch his career fade into oblivion in The Ghost Writer. Escaping to his childhood home, haunted by memories of his late, successful writer father, inspiration remains elusive. But amidst the dusty shadows, Gilliger unearths a hidden manuscript – his father’s unfinished masterpiece.

Driven by desperation and a glimmer of hope, Gilliger makes a fateful choice: plagiarism. The lines between reality and fiction blur as he transcribes the chilling words. He’s not just stealing a story; he’s awakening malevolent forces.

A Chilling Mystery:

Haunted by the characters and tormented by secrets embedded within the narrative, Gilliger uncovers a shocking truth: his father’s seemingly accidental death may have been a cold-blooded murder, and the manuscript, a veiled confession.

Eerie visuals and unsettling whispers evoke the chilling presence of his father and the characters he brought to life. As Gilliger delves deeper, paranoia grips him, blurring the lines between reality and the fictional world his father created. Glimpses of a dark past and cryptic clues suggest a sinister truth far beyond plagiarism.

The Cast:

28 Days Later, actor Luke Mably portrays Gilliger’s torment with captivating intensity while the supporting cast adds depth and suspense. He is joined by Andrea Deck (The Crown, Hanna), Brendan Patricks (Downton Abbey, Traitors), Robert Portal (The Iron Lady, My Week with Marilyn), and Matthew Jure (Undertow, Macbeth).

A Chilling Tale:

The Ghost Writer promises a suspenseful exploration of legacy, guilt, and the haunting consequences of unearthing buried secrets. It provides a chilling mix of psychological horror, mystery, and family drama, creating a captivating and unsettling atmosphere. The Ghost Writer arrives on VOD and digital platforms on February 13th, 2024, from Dark Sky Films. Prepare to be gripped by a haunting tale of secrets, family legacies, and the price of literary success built on stolen words.
