The Casebook of Eddie Brewer is a 2012 paranormal mystery thriller film written and directed by Andrew Spencer.

The film was shot in and around Birmingham in 2010-11. The music score was composed by Jamie Robertson.
Over the course of a few weeks, a TV documentary film crew follows old-school paranormal investigator, Eddie Brewer (Ian Brooker), as he investigates a couple of disturbing and baffling local cases. He visits a suburban house where a neurotic mother is convinced that something malevolent has entered her home and attached itself to her ten-year-old daughter, Lucy; and a dilapidated Eighteenth Century building, Rookery House, where weird and disquieting noises have been heard in the cellar. A lonely figure, Brewer must not only contend with sceptics and rivals in his own field who denounce his methods and try to undermine his investigations, but he is dogged by personal guilt over the death of his wife, Sarah. Eddie Brewer faces the greatest challenge of his life when he at last confronts the source of these paranormal manifestations during an all night vigil at the old house. For Brewer it is not just a matter of belief – it becomes a matter of survival.
