In a neglected Northern city riven by criminal gangs and rife with drugs, two small time gangsters, Tariq (Sid Akbar Ali) and Boxy (Jamie Cymbal), are given an ultimatum by the local Godfather - find their missing boss Frank and return the drug money he's stolen or be battered to death with a cricket bat. A task made even more problematic once we discover Tariq and Boxy accidently killed Frank a few days before. After several unsuccessful attempts to find the money, Tariq hatches a desperate last ditch plan. A local psychic medium, Alice Moon (Jo Mousley), has been helping police locate bodies hidden by a notorious serial killer. Tariq persuades Boxy to help him kidnap Alice and force her to make contact with Frank. Following a bizarre and terrifying seance, Frank's poltergeist possesses Alice's body and persuades Tariq and Boxy to replace the missing money by robbing a rival drugs gang. But the heist is bungled and sparks off a bloody gang war. Frank, still in control of Alice's body, continues to lead the hapless pair on a merry dance through the city's dark underworld. It's a journey that ends in a vast, run down Victorian cemetery where Frank has planned a final brutal act of revenge on the men who murdered him...but like all the plans in Polterheist, this one has unseen and unpleasant consequences.
