Ghost Finder: The Gateway of the Monster

A new 6 x 60-minute supernatural horror series.

A sceptic paranormal investigator and her psychic partner face down malicious forces and dangerous criminals, as they attempt to understand life, death and beyond.

Ghost Finder is a supernatural horror series based on the stories of William Hope Hodgson. When originally published, these stories followed the after-dinner anecdotes of a well-to-do man. Now, they follow the paranormal investigations of Tasmin Carnacki as she exposes hauntings and hoaxes. This adaptation brings events into the modern era, using contemporary paranormal tools and setting it in homes and locations recognisable to modern audiences.

The Story
A terrified girl walks down a dimly lit staircase towards a dull, heavy thudding. She places her hand on a door. It swings open. Darkness fills the space beyond. As she moves closer to the steady thudding, a sticky metallic scent makes her gag. A man looms over her, a hammer raised. Beneath him, a woman lies bleeding. He turns to the girl. She screams.
Tasmin's father still serves time in a secure hospital for the brutal murder of his wife. He often begs Tasmin to believe he was not responsible for his actions, telling her that the devil made him do it. Fuelled by this claim, Tasmin became fascinated by the paranormal. Now a well-respected private investigator, her detective skills and stoic scepticism have given her a reputation as a reliable paranormal investigator.

The Series
Tasmin meets Peter, a handyman and historian, as he is finding his psychic feet, and together they face a deadly portal in the form of an ancient ring. Deciding that their partnership benefits both of them, they begin to work together. Leading them to uncover a dangerous criminal gang hiding in an abandoned pub. Pull the mask from a murderous ex-lover 'haunting' a hotel. Expose a desperate man searching for his stashed money in a haunted house. Reveal a dangerous curse in a boarded-up room. Discover a trap set by a troubled priest. And, after honing his psychic muscles, Peter shows Tasmin the devastating truth about her mothers' death. There was never any possession, only jealousy.
