A&E Network presents the supernatural thriller The Enfield Haunting, a dramatization of the terrifying real-life events that took place in a seemingly ordinary home in northern London during the fall of 1977.
Adapted from Guy Lyon Playfair’s book “This House is Haunted,” The Enfield Haunting draws on extensive documentation, recordings and witness statements recorded at the time. To this day, the incident remains the most documented account of poltergeist activity in British history and the basis of horror films including the upcoming The Conjuring 2.
Starring Timothy Spall (Harry Potter, The King’s Speech) as Maurice Grosse, a rookie paranormal researcher, and BAFTA nominated actress Juliet Stevenson (Emma, Truly Madly Deeply, The Village) as his grieving wife Betty. BAFTA winner Matthew Macfadyen (Ripper Street, Frost/Nixon, Pride and Prejudice) portrays Guy Lyon Playfair, an experienced investigator who approaches the case with skepticism.
Following a personal tragedy, Maurice is drawn to the house in Enfield after disturbing reports of a desperate family terrorized by malevolent unseen forces. Working together to get to the heart of the supernatural happenings, Maurice and Guy find that they cannot save the tortured family without first coming to terms with their own demons.
The miniseries premieres Friday, October 9 at 10pm ET/PT on A&E.
