Have you ever entered a room and heard strange sounds or noises, or witnessed furniture or other objects seemingly move without any human intervention or assistance?

If you answered “yes,” then you may have encountered a “poltergeist,” which is the German word for “noisy spirit.” Thought by many to be mischievous pranks caused by humans and non-humans alike, these incidents are also frequently characterized as the malevolent actions of “demons.”

Dr. Ciaran O’Keefe, a professor at Buckinghamshire New University, the author of several books on paranormal phenomena, thinks it’s mostly mind over matter. In a recent interview, Dr. O’Keefe expressed his view that our responses to these situations are mostly a function of our “not being aware of natural explanations.” He added, “The hairs going up on the back of your neck, for example, could be a number of different environmental and psychological reasons.”

But with all due respect to the good professor, everything isn’t so easily dismissible or explainable, particularly if the award-winning writer and director, Blake Ridder, is somehow involved. In his latest film, THE MANOR, four American filmmakers are scouting a location in the English countryside, when they suddenly find themselves trapped in a sort of time loop, filled with unexpected twists, and turns.

To help get the project realized, Blake and team have already released a 13-minute “proof of concept,” a preview of sorts, which features Kim Lysette Spearman (@kimilysette), Sarah Alexandra Marks (@sarahamarks), Rui Shang (@official_ruishang), and Louis James (@louisjames24). View it for FREE. And if you like what you see, you can contribute to the endeavor, and pick up a great “perk,” in the process.

Whether or not you want Blake to haunt you … it may be best to pledge to THE MANOR. (If you dare ....)
