A playful love letter to the haunted house genre, whilst paying clever homage to the legendary Ghostwatch, this debut feature from local writer/director Dominic O’Neill is not to be missed. Especially not on Halloween night!

It’s Halloween night, 1998. As darkness falls, TVNI begins broadcasting a spooky special event, Haunted Ulster Live. Veteran presenter Gerry Burns and children's presenter Michelle Kelly team up to investigate a house supposedly disturbed by poltergeist activity. What begins as a harmless bit of fun soon descends into something creepier… who is leaving scratches on the wall? Why did a seance suddenly cause chaos? Where are all these footprints coming from?

The film utilises a found-footage UTV aesthetic, creating an uncanny familiarity to the haunted house proceedings that follow. As funny as it is unnerving, Haunted Ulster Live also boasts great performances, an eerie score and a production design that pulls you back, kicking and screaming, to the late 1990s.

Cast and crew will be in attendance for a post-screening Q&A.
