Apple TV Plus Conjures Up 'The Enfield Poltergeist' Docuseries

Apple TV Plus will revisit the events surrounding the claimed 1970's Enfield, London, poltergeist haunting in a new docuseries set to debut October 27.

The four-part documentary series, The Enfield Poltergeist, will feature more than 250 hours of rare audio archive and interviews with the people impacted by the case, according to the service. Building a replica of the house where the incidents took place, performers reenact what is heard on the actual tapes, which allows an interplay by the archival voices and appearances of those initially involved in the incident through present-day interviews, said Apple TV Plus. 

The story of the 1977 haunting of an everyday family has inspired fictional versions of the case, including the 2016 film The Conjuring 2, a television series and two stage plays.

The Enfield Poltergeist is executive produced by Al Morrow, Stewart le Marechal, Davis Guggenheim, Jonathan Silberberg and Nicole Stott.
