Tim Daly and Zoe Saldana in The Skeptic Trailer

Ghost schmost. That’s what the lead character in “The Skeptic” thinks. That is, until his Aunt conks over and he inherits her spooky house. Our hero goes to reclaim his inheritance, but when spooky things start happening, the skeptic starts to have second thoughts about that whole not believing thing. Unfortunately for him, no one believes him, including his buddy Tom Arnold and his wife, who thinks he’s going nuts. But luckily for him, the gorgeous Zoe Saldana is there to lend a hand as a local psychic. Trailer for Tennyson Bardwell’s “The Skeptic” below.

After the mysterious death of his Aunt, a confirmed skeptic lawyer, Bryan Becket, dismisses reports that her house is haunted and moves in. Immediately occurrences begin he cannot explain. And beyond the occurrences there is something about the house which gnaws at Becket – some strange connection he senses he has with the house’s past. Soon, the haunting turns personal, he hears voices suggesting clues to a deep mystery. He questions his sanity, seeks medical help, but instead finds assistance in a young psychic who immediately declares, “There’s a very bad secret in this house.” Together they embark on a terrifying journey to uncover the secret – a journey which leads them deep into the recesses of The Skeptic’s own troubled mind.

Starring Tim Daly, Tom Arnold , Zoe Saldana, Andrea Roth, Edward Herrmann, Robert Prosky, and Bruce Altman. Tennyson Bardwell writes and directs.

The film is scheduled for limited release May 1 by IFC Films.
