As day turned to night on Wednesday, a world's first is revealed - the image changes in low illumination (and Sophia becomes director Adam Wimpenny but we suspect there's a simple explanation for that phenomenon).

Blackwood is being released in cinemas around the UK on Friday starring Sophia and Paul Kaye.

The film is a psychological thriller with a ghostly twist which Empire described as "a British Sixth Sense".
