GHOST STORIES is a British horror anthology in which a TV personality who debunks supernatural occurrences is challenged with disproving three unexplained events.

Threat

Frequent, sustained scenes of supernatural threat and horror include people being pursued by ghosts, a decomposing body and a demonic figure. In one sequence a teenager suffers an asthma attack while in a confined space.

Language

There is occasional use of strong language ('f**k') and milder terms including 'prick', 'bollocks', 'bullshit' and 'crap'. The discriminatory terms 'poofters' and 'chinky' are also used, but the work does not condone their use.

A scene of school bullying occurs in which a boy is referred to as "Jew face" and two teens mock a boy with learning difficulties, although the work as a whole does not endorse such language or behaviour. In one sequence a man appears to take his own life with resultant brief bloody detail and there are infrequent references to suicide.
