The Most Haunted House in England

When Daily Mirror journalist V C Wall (Reece Shearsmith) calls upon the services of famed paranormal investigator Harry Price (Jonathan Rigby) to investigate supernatural 'goings on' at a Victorian mansion in Essex, little does he realise that he will set into motion a story that will fascinate and confound the world. 'Borley Rectory' is the true story of Price's investigation and the legends that came to haunt all those involved.

Borley Rectory is an animated documentary chronicling what came to be known as 'The most haunted house in England'. The legends attached to the rectory and famed paranormal investigator Harry Price's subsequent investigations of them, caught the public's imagination during the 1930s, in time becoming one of the world's most notorious ghost stories
and influencing Shirley Jackson's 'The Haunting of Hill House' and Richard Matheson's 'Hell House.'

"For fans of the supernatural, Borley Rectory is a MUST SEE"
- Diabolique Magazine

This release of Borley Rectory has inspired Usborne Publishing to re-release their classic "The World of the Unknown: All About Ghosts" book, which was a huge influence on director Ashley Thorpe and Actor Reece Shearsmith, who has written an introduction to the new edition.
