In 1979, a team of scientists moves into a new laboratory in a Victorian mansion. When Jill Greely (Romala Garai) hears a strange disembodied scream, the team decides to analyse the phenomenon, which appears to be a psychic impression trapped in the wall. The scientists begin to realise that their work has disturbed something hidden beneath the stone, something ancient and malevolent.
Based on Nigel Kneale’s classic 1972 horror TV movie, Strickland’s audio reimagining of The Stone Tape, innovatively expands on the sonic premise of the original with considered sound design from Andrew Liles that takes advantage of the audiences’ focus on hearing.
