Ghosts exist. Whether you choose to believe in them or not. Luckily, so does the Carnacki Institute, a top secret organisation set up to combat the dead. When reports of the supernatural from an old village hall point to an apparently standard haunting, an elite team of ghost finders is dispatched to investigate. But things go from bad to worse when it becomes clear the team are facing something far more sinister than they first anticipated. The hall harbours a dark secret and the team must use every trick they know to try and get out of there alive. Who will survive and what will be left of their souls?
