Arch skeptic Professor Phillip Goodman embarks upon a terror-filled quest when he stumbles across a long-lost file containing details of three cases of inexplicable hauntings in “Ghost Stories” from indie filmmakers Jeremy Dyson and Andy Nyman. The New York Times calls it “a fun creep-out” and says it “mixes bumps in the night with cerebral thoughts about the nature of existence.”
