Skeletons (2010)

Bennett and Davis are psychic exorcists, travelling the country and using supernatural means to get inside people’s minds, to help unburden them of their skeletons and find their darkest secrets. It’s a dirty job, with strict protocols and not much time for friendships.


When they are sent on a difficult mission to try and find a woman’s missing husband, presumed dead, they can find no trace of his memory in the house. Nick Whitfield’s award winning British comedy is a classic that’s been compared to Withnail and I, without irony!

  • "With its pitch-perfect performances, surreal streak of humour, strong sense of place and poignant notes of melancholy, it might just be the finest cult film to have come from Britain since Withnail and I (1987)." Anton Bitel, Film4


    "Nick Whitfield's directorial debut is a screwy, smart look at the boundaries we draw between our private and public lives, delivered through a darkly funny script steeped in existential fantasy." Henry Barnes, Little White Lies
