The tale of the haunting at Borley Rectory is a
legendary one, which caught the imagination of the general public in the 1920s.
Stories about the rectory and its spectral inhabitants circulated between
intrigued parties in hushed tones for decades but it wasn’t until The Daily
Mirror newspaper printed an account of the phenomena witnessed by paranormal
investigator Harry Price that the building’s supernatural reputation really
began to take hold. Price’s investigations form the basis for Ashley Thorpe’s
extraordinary film, which is pitched as “an ultrasound of a haunting”: a
beautifully realised artifact documenting the house’s various occupants
throughout its history, both living and dead.
Over six years in the making, Ashley Thorpe’s visually
stunning tale of “the most haunted house in England” is unlike any horror film
you’ve seen in recent memory. Combining live action, rotoscoping and digital
animation techniques, Borley Rectory is a fascinating and enthralling
experience that is as haunting as the events it depicts.
We are delighted to welcome director Ashley Thorpe to
Celluloid Screams for a Q&A after the film.
