Influential BBC horror movie The Stone Tape airs Friday

The Stone Tape

The Stone Tape aired as TV play written by BBC veteran writer Nigel Kneale in 1972. It has gone on to become highly influential to other filmmakers including John Carpenter as well as to the field of parapsychology in general, inspiring what is now known as the Stone tape theory of residual haunting.

The story follows a team of scientists who begin research in a newly renovated Victorian mansion and find themselves experiencing paranormal events. As they turn the focus of their research on the ghostly occurrences, the spirits they’ve uncovered only become more powerful.

See The Stone Tape as presented by The Dungeon of Dreck this Friday, August 4 at 4 p.m. and midnight online or on Comcast 50/Verizon 45 within Philadelphia.
