Enfield Poltergeist Set for Big-Screen Adaptation
Recordings at the house captured a variety of unexplained incidents that plagued mother Peggy Hodgson and her four children, including banging on the walls and moving furniture – witnessed by police and journalists.Film producer John Kyriacou said: “It's of personal interest to me as I grew up in the area and I used to go to nearby Brimsdown Primary School. “Once we started the process of making the film we found there was an incredible interest in the story amongst people who live in the area.” Although the last recorded incident at the house took place in 1980, the story has continued to receive widespread media attention and inspired the BBC's infamous paranormal mockumentary Ghostwatch in 1992.
Auditions are currently being held for the film, which will be filmed in July in a different house in Green Street.
Mr Kyriacou added: “It's going to be a low budget production but we have got some interest from Lionsgate who told us to make the film first and then we'll see what happens.
“I've always wanted to make a film but after I started my own company I forgot about my ambition.
“But when I got the chance to make one there was only one story that I really wanted to make and this is it.”
Casting for the lead female role in The Enfield Poltergeist is taking place on March 26 at Blu-Ray's offices in Alexandra Road.
