Once upon a time, someone thought it would be funny to combine “Paranormal Activity” with the sort of humor found in such millennial-minded comedies as “Project X” and “Over 21.” If that sounds like your idea of an extremely good time, then you might want to watch the trailer for directors Ben Peyser and Scott Rutherford’s “Ghost Team One.” It’s probably the sort of thing you’ve been after your entire life.
All kidding aside, the documentary-style horror/comedy doesn’t look that bad. I mean, it’s probably not going to win any prestigious awards for cinematic excellence down the road, but the premise is kind of amusing. Kind of. Here’s hoping Peyser and Rutherford can make this paper-thin premise work as a feature-length film.
A synopsis? Why not:
The film follows two friends who are both trying to impress a girl who believes the spirit of a vengeful madam is haunting their home. They set out to make a documentary about a murder that took place in their house decades ago and, much to their surprise, soon capture some terrifying – and uproarious – supernatural activity that leads them to believe that the ghost is not only real…she’s also into them.
“Ghost Team One” stars Carlos Santos, J.R. Villarreal, Tony Cavalero, and Fernanda Romero. The flick opens in limited release in the United States on October 11. The red band trailer, which is definitely not safe for work, can be found haunting the space below.
