BBC America is airing The Secret of Crickley Hall on October 28th and beginning an encore run of “Hex” on October 6th following the Season 2 premiere of “Bedlam.” Read on for more details on all three projects.
THE SECRET OF CRICKLEY HALL
Three-hour event The Secret of Crickley Hall premieres Sunday, October 28, 8:00pm ET/PT.
Based on the novel by best-selling British scribe James Herbert, the thriller begins a year after the disappearance of Cam, the son of Gabe Caliegh (Tom Ellis, “The Fades”) and Eve Caleigh (Suranne Jones, “Doctor Who”). As the couple and their two daughters attempt to start anew, they head to Crickley Hall – a seemingly perfect countryside house. But when cellar doors start to open on their own, phantom children’s cries are heard through the night, and a frenzied cane-wielding specter rears its head – the Caleighs realize the house comes with a lot more than they bargained for. Just as they’re ready to move out, Eve Caleigh hears Cam’s cries, and all bets are off.
Shifting between 1943 and present day, the Caleighs are desperate to find the source of the crying and the connection the haunted house has to their son. Will they find him before the evil that stalks Crickley Hall finds their other children? Written and directed by Joe Ahearne (“Doctor Who”), this classic haunted house spine chiller is full of scares, yet underpinned by the heartbreaking story of a family needing to heal and ghosts who need to be laid to rest.
The Secret of Crickley Hall is a BBC production that also stars Douglas Henshall (“Primeval”).
