It is Christmas Eve, 1875. A lonely house sits atop a cliff, overlooking a desolate stretch of the East Sussex coast. The very rooms seem alive with unexplained sounds, shadows and voices. Outside, a gathering storm threatens to envelop the house and suffocate all those contained within.

Take a deep breath, relax, close your eyes and remember…there’s no such thing as ghosts.
