Official The Selling of Scarry Manor Website
As if the real estate market weren’t bad enough, try being a realtor having to sell a haunted house. That’s the problem facing one hapless real estate agent in the new horror comedy The Selling of Scarry Manor.
Richard Scarry is too nice. He’s a real estate agent who tries to talk people out of buying houses they can’t afford. When his business partner Dave Ross comes up with a scheme to flip an old house for profit, he only agrees because he needs to find a way to pay for his sick mother’s medical bills.
As Richard and Dave start fixing up the house for buyers, it becomes obvious why their real estate nemesis, Mary Best, was so eager to pass the house along to them. Disembodied voices tell them to leave, walls bleed, and a portal to the spirit realm opens in an upstairs closet. In short, the house is haunted.
Leveraged to the hilt, Richard must figure out a way to get rid of the house before its ghostly inhabitants ruin his life. He enlists the aid of his intimidating old Sunday school teacher Father Jimmy to perform an exorcism and a Ghost Right’s Activist named Ginger Sparks to conduct a seance, each with disastrous results.
As the pressure mounts, Richard finds someone to take possession of the house. But when an evil spirit decides to move out of the house and into Richard’s body, he soon discovers he has a whole new set of possession problems.
Newcomer Emily Lou directs this haunted house comedy written by Gabriel Diani, who also stars as the bumbling real estate agent with a very familiar literary name. The original title was just The Selling, but distributor Artist View Entertainment must have figured that was too vague and tacked on “Scarry Manor” to the title just to make sure we all understand its a haunted house flick.
Look for Barry Bostwick getting his exorcist on as in-over-his-head Father Jimmy in this trailer for The Selling of Richard Scarry.
