Daily Mirror Excerpt - The Messenger

Friday 11th September 2015

Robert Sheehan, of TV’s Misfits, stars in this interesting supernatural thriller which starts as a Sixth Sense-style mystery before turning into something quite different.

Our man is a down-at-heel psychic who’s become a kind of paranormal messenger service for ghosts wanting to commune with their loved ones. His gift turns out to be more of a curse, having made him a social outcast thanks to his habit of crashing funerals to deliver messages from beyond the grave or wandering down his high street talking to spirits nobody else can see.

The budget is low and it might not be spooky enough to satisfy outright horror hounds but there are some intriguing ideas and the story heads into unexpected places.
