In 1977, a harrowing haunting unfolded within the everyday life of a family residing in Enfield, London. This paranormal phenomenon sent shockwaves through the United Kingdom and left an indelible mark on an entire generation of children. The mysterious Enfield case forever altered perceptions of the supernatural. It shattered the notion that otherworldly occurrences were confined to castles and stately homes, revealing that they could manifest anywhere, affecting anyone. This chilling and mysterious narrative has sparked a slew of fictionalized adaptations, including “The Conjuring 2,” a television series, and even two stage plays.
Over the course of four riveting episodes, “The Enfield Poltergeist” revisits the events in Enfield, drawing from authentic recordings meticulously collected by paranormal investigator Maurice Grosse. Grosse carefully archived all his interviews with those directly affected by the supernatural phenomena. To create a truly immersive experience, a replica of the house where these haunting events unfolded has been constructed. Talented performers reenact the eerie occurrences as they were documented on the actual tapes, thus enabling an eerie interplay between archival voices and the insights of those who were involved in the haunting, as captured in present-day interviews.
This captivating and spine-chilling series is produced for Apple TV+ by MetFilm and Concordia Studio, the same team behind Apple’s “STILL: A Michael J. Fox Movie.” The director, Jerry Rothwell, brings his expertise to this bone-chilling exploration of the Enfield Poltergeist, promising viewers an unforgettable journey into the unexplained and the profound impact it can have on human lives.
