AN ENGLISH HAUNTING is a British horror film in which a mother and her son go and live in an old secluded mansion to look after her sick father but are haunted by ghostly happenings.

Threat and horror

There are scenes of strong supernatural threat as a mother and son are haunted by disturbing dreams, objects moving of their own accord, as well as a man who is choked by an invisible demonic force.

Violence

Scenes include a bloody ritualistic throat slitting shown in black and white grainy footage and a woman bludgeoned to death with a mallet.

Disturbing images

There are disturbing scenes including four men engaged in the ritual slaughter of a boy with severe facial disfigurement, in which they wear crowns made out of animal bones and cover themselves in human blood. Other images include black and white photographs of foetuses and newborn children, as well as one showing the skeleton of a small child with a fractured skull.

There is infrequent strong language ('f**k'), with other milder terms such as 'shit', 'bastard', 'bloody', 'arse', 'Jesus Christ' and 'damn'. There is also a use of the term 'retarded'.

This work contains flashing images which may affect viewers who are susceptible to photosensitive epilepsy.
