We have two films for you this week. Ghost Stories on Tuesday at 19:30 is the screen adaptation of the hit stage play by Jeremy Dyson and Andy Nyman. It is in the tradition of portmanteau horror films that stretches back to Ealing’s Dead of Night (1945), and is best typified by the films such as Dr Terror’s House of Horrors (1965), Asylum and Tales from the Crypt (both 1972) produced by Amicus Productions.
