I'll Be Back Before Midnight


Peter Colley

Directed by: Ryan Ellershaw

4th, 6th - 11th Jun 2005

Jan has recently had a nervous breakdown, and her husband Greg, an archeologist, has rented an old farmhouse in the country where she can recover. The old farmhouse is near an archeological dig where he can continue his studies. When George, the hilarious farmer they rent the house from, tells stories about a terrible murder that once took place in the farmhouse and the ghost that reputedly stalks the night, Jan's imagination gets fired up. The situation gets even worse when Laura, Greg's beautiful but manipulative sister arrives. Soon Jan finds herself tormented by strange sounds in the night, and visions of the vengeful ghost. Is she having another breakdown? Is someone trying to drive her mad?...
