Director: Kieran Hickey
A ghost story set in the days when radio was the centre of home entertainment. Three nights a week, in suspenseful instalments, Ainsley Rupert Macreadie writes and broadcasts his own stories to rapt audiences. He is known as "the disturbing gentleman of the wireless", and his chilling and intriguing tales of inventive horror tease his listeners into nightmares. But his latest cruel narrative, the story of The Great Orsino, a magician whose tricks cause the horrifying death of his boy assistant, becomes a reality in which Macreadie finds himself an unwilling participant when the character of the boy refuses to obey the writer's commands. Suddenly Macreadie discovers that he is the victim of the kind of terror which, up until now, he has reserved for others.
