A self-storage facility off the A12 offers hope to a lost soul, but there's a sinister price attached.

Mark Gatiss returns as the sinister raconteur, The Man in Black, to introduce David Lemon's tale. Starring Clare Corbett as Helen, Rikki Lawton as Andy and Carl Prekopp as Tom.

More horrifying tales from The Man in Black. You might meet him at a luggage carousel in an airport, or behind the desk at an employment agency or he might approach you in the corridor of a care home. Wherever you encounter him, he's eager to pass on his stories. Stories to unsettle and horrify. Stories to haunt you.
