‘The most haunted building in the United Kingdom’

The Haunting of Margam Castle is a 2020 British horror feature film about two American parapsychologists who travel to Wales. Their purpose? To conduct a study of Margam Castle, one of the UK’s most haunted buildings.

Written and directed by prolific Andrew Jones (The Jonestown Haunting; Werewolves of the Third Reich; The Legend of Halloween Jack and sequel; Robert the Doll franchise; et al) the movie is based on an original idea by Robert Graham.

The Northbank Entertainment production stars Caroline Munro (Vampyres 2015; Slaughter High; Captain Kronos: Vampire Hunter; et al), Derren Nesbitt (Burke & Hare), Jane Merrow (The Spiritualist; Hands of the Ripper; Night of the Big Heat; et al), Vernon Dobtcheff (Horsehead; An American Haunting; The Beast in the Cellar) and Judy Matheson (Crucible of Terror; Twins of Evil; Lust for a Vampire).

Plot:

For many years the dark and foreboding Margam Castle, long considered one of the most haunted buildings in Britain, has been abandoned – or so it seemed. An American research team led by Professor Annie Holzer (Amy Quick) and Doctor Daniel Barron (Ashton Spear) take an interest in the castle’s macabre history of unexplained deaths and supernatural sightings.

The pair travel to Wales to stay at the castle, intending to conduct a series of experiments in parapsychology. But when night falls the research team’s study goes awry and they’re forced to fight for their lives when they incur the wrath of the vengeful spirits who live within the walls of Margam Castle…

Review:

“A solid B-movie spook-show with a nostalgic cluster of British horror veterans, Andrew Jones’ latest is a treat for fans that effectively combines classic and contemporary horror […] Jones’ regular DP Jonathan McLaughlin ably photographs the actual Margam Castle, an early Victorian monstrosity built for William Fox Talbot’s family.” British Horror Revival

The Haunting of Margam Castle is an admirable British horror movie. While Jones’ sturdy professionalism and a bevy of familiar faces ensures that it ranks high on the filmmaker’s lengthy resume, there’s no doubting that the castle is the star of the piece, and it’s an assertion that the director is happy to agree with.” The Schlock Pit
