Ghost Sto­ries, the Brit hor­ror that could only be scarier with a demon nun.

BAD RE­LI­GION

__ The pro­logue of port­man­teau piece Ghost Sto­ries fea­tures the Bar Mitz­vah of Andy Ny­man’s char­ac­ter, Pro­fes­sor Phillip Good­man. “It’s filled with mean­ing for us,” says Ny­man, who met Dyson at Jewish sum­mer camp when they were 15. “The whole film is deeply rooted in our up­bring­ings, and our friend­ship.” Both men, adds Ny­man, strayed from re­li­gion, which has brought “emo­tional com­pli­ca­tions. In the ar­ro­gance of youth you think you can just shun some­thing and it’s cut and dried.” As the film pro­gresses, we learn things aren’t that easy.
