Long Night at Blackstone

Lighthearted horror. The host of a low-rent paranormal activity show learns that her show is to be axed and is determined to go out with a bang.

Long Night at Blackstone is Greg Hemphill's second outing as a director, and is the follow-up to his hilarious and terrifying West Skerra Light. Faye Bowers is the host of a low-rent paranormal activity show, a master of trickery and pretence, but she is desperate to be taken seriously as a journalist. When she learns that the show is to be axed, she is determined to go out with a bang. The venue for the final show is the mysterious Blackstone Manor, a huge dilapidated pile inhabited by the Laird of Blackstone and full of stories of past horrors. Though the filming day starts normally enough, it soon becomes apparent that all is not right, and for the very first time in the show's history, the ghosts may in fact be real and very dangerous. Battling backstabbing colleagues as well as the terrors in the house, Faye finds herself making a show that could catapult her career into the big league - if she can survive the night.

Starring Lorraine McIntosh as Faye Bowers the presenter, John Gordon Sinclair as Pat Tomorrow the psychic sidekick, Julie Wilson Nimmo as Dom the Producer, John Michie as the Laird, and introducing a very special mystery guest.
