Purchasing a House Can Be a Haunting Experience in Director Emily Lou’s The Selling


This one has all the ingredients to be something special. Absurd comedy and supernatural shenanigans take center stage in Emily Lou’s “The Selling”, a promising indie horror flick that follows the adventures of a desperate real estate agent as he tries to move an extremely haunted house. Not surprisingly, it doesn’t take long for all sorts of supernatural hijinks to ensue. And you thought buying a house was scary enough, right? Am I right?

Before continuing, take a look at this synopsis:

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.

“The Selling” wants to make you a deal later this year.

Todd was raised on a steady diet of Hollywood blockbusters, late-night Cinemax programming, and USA’s “Up All Night,” which may explain why his taste in movies is more than a little questionable. When he isn’t providing news and reviews for Beyond Hollywood, he can be found lounging lazily on his couch, perched in front of his television, or dwelling in places where direct sunlight can be easily avoided. He's happily married, in his 30's, and totally badass. If you'd like to reach Todd, you can follow him on Twitter or send him email/scoops to todd (at) beyondhollywood.com.
