Synopsis/Details: 

Five people have been invited to take part in a paranormal trial set over four days in a mansion in the UK countryside. They include a street magician, an end-of-career stage psychic, a TV ghost-hunter, a Vegas-style illusionist and a billionaire inventor/paranormal author. All claim to have mastered the art of astral projection.
With a large financial prize for the victor, they have accepted the challenge of the little-known Victorian 5-room trial, reputedly developed by two famous escapologists to expose fake psychics.
Only someone with the genuine ability to leave their body at will in order to investigate what each room holds can safely complete the trial and avoid certain death. However, even for the victor awaits defeat, because the whole purpose of the trial is to steal their body while their astral form is away.
The billionaire is not what he seems. Far from being a participant he is a dying man who needs a new body to inhabit, and it is he who has arranged the whole trial.
Only one of the participants will complete the trial, but in a thrilling finale the twist is that he will thwart the billionaire’s plan and inherit all his wealth.

The Writer: Alan Fleet

I started out as a novelist and Woollyback was my first novel to be published in July 2000. Two years later this was selected by the UK Film Council for a tutored adaptation at Bournemouth Film School which in turn led to me completing a Masters in Screenwriting in 2006. To date I have made twenty-three short films on a wide variety of topics with costs ranging from zero budget to £10K. Giri won four festival awards and all the films can be seen on YouTube at Alan Fleet Short Films. I have written eight novels, a four-part TV drama, and eight feature screenplays, one of which, Summerisle, is a spec sequel to The Wicker Man that Robin Hardy had expressed interest in directing through...
