Fresh off its premiere at Slamdance, horror comedy Ghost Team One, directed by Ben Peyser and Scott Rutherford, has landed itself a worldwide distribution deal with Paramount Home Media Distribution.
Ghost Team One, which was produced by Flying Monkeys Entertainment and Foresight Entertainment, follows a pair of roommates who, after falling for a girl who believes their house is haunted by a vengeful madame, set out to make a documentary that ultimately uncovers not just a decades-old murder but a ghost that appears to be into them.
It’s certainly an original premise, with FilmThreat saying it “does for ghost films what Shaun of the Dead did for zombie films,” so color me intrigued. The film stars Carlos Santos, J.R. Villareal, Tony Cavalero, and Fernanda Romero and, if the stars align, might end up getting a theatrical release.
With luck this low-budget ghost story will help reinvigorate the dwindling found footage genre, which has seen its fair share of stinkers over the past couple of years. Contrary to popular opinion, I feel the genre is one of the best ways to convey fear to the viewer, so I say the more, the merrier.
