Based on the Ghost Finders book series by New York Times best-selling author Simon R. Green, whose work has sold over 2.5 million copies worldwide.

Ghosts exist. Whether you choose to believe in them or not. Luckily, so does the Carnacki Institute, a top secret organisation set up to combat the dead. When reports of the supernatural from an old village hall point to an apparently standard haunting, an elite team of Ghost Finders is dispatched to investigate. The team of four includes a cameraman and former Ghost Finder with a mysterious past, who is there to document events as a training tool for new recruits.

But things go from bad to worse when it becomes clear that they are facing something far more sinister than they first anticipated. The hall harbours a dark secret and the team must use every trick they know to try and get out of there alive.

Three men and one woman who think they’ve seen it all. That is, until they encounter the chilling Judas Ghost.

Who will survive and what will be left of their souls?
