During Lockdown we thought we would share something free to watch online (or on TV if you have an Amazon Prime account). We are proud to share The Telling.


When Sam heads back to her sleepy, Scottish hometown for a job interview - she bumps into an old friend who's never been able to leave. Why hasn't Peter left? What does he need to say to her? Something sinister is watching them both.

The Telling is a throwback to subtle, slow-build supernatural dramas of the 80s/90s and is inspired by classic British TV like Children of The Stones, Chocky, The Stone Tape, Day of the Triffids and the BBC's Ghost Stories for Christmas series.

Stewart Hamilton has been composing electronic music for many years and scoring feature films. This is his second short film as writer director. It was filmed entirely on location in Lauder, Scottish Borders - with an amazing cast led by Clare Ross and Andy Noble.

How can I watch?

The Telling is now available to view on Amazon Prime UK.

If you are not in the UK, don't have Amazon Prime or just want to watch on a different device - you can also watch the film on Vimeo.

And finally, you can listen to the original soundtrack on Bandcamp.

Enjoy and let us know what you think.
