Film Arcade and Paramount Home Media Distribution (PHMD) today announced that the independent film Ghost Team One will be released day-and-date in select theaters, on VOD and on Digital on October 11th. Film Arcade will distribute the film in top markets with plans to focus heavily on college and Latino audiences. PHMD will handle VOD and Digital distribution for the hilarious and subversive horror send-up, which was an official selection at the 2013 Slamdance Film Festival.
Produced by Hernany Perla Films in association with Flying Monkeys Entertainment and Foresight Entertainment, Ghost Team One has drawn early raves from critics who have called the film "hilariously offensive and ludicrously endearing" (Indiewire) and "pure comedy gold" (Film Threat). In addition, Mark L. Miller of Aint It Cool News proclaimed, "It's a film that will definitely show up on my Best Horror Film of the Year list."
Ghost Team One 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 is produced by Hernany Perla (My Bloody Valentine 3D) and Adam Mutchler, directed by Ben Peyser () and Scott Rutherford (writer on Workaholics) and stars actor and comedian Carlos Santos (host of MTV Tr3s' Mi TRL), J.R. Villarreal (Akeelah and the Bee), Tony Cavalero (Son of a Pitch) and Fernanda Romero (RPM Miami). PHMD acquired the worldwide rights to the film in a deal that was brokered by Nate Bolotin and Aram Tertzakian of XYZ Films and Chris Sablan of Original Artists.
Ghost Team One was released October 11th, 2013 and stars Carlos Santos, J.R. Villarreal, Tony Cavalero, Meghan Falcone, James Babson, Craig Stott, Damien Amey, Sarah Chapman. The film is directed by Ben Peyser, Scott Rutherford.
