Storyline

A dark and bloody parody about a Scooby-Doo-like team of paranormal investigators and their devoted dog. With the crew nearing bankruptcy, they're hired to get to the bottom of a series of spooky events at the remote Kyser mansion, an old religious school plagued by rumors of satanism and ritualistic murder. They're experts at debunking ghost stories, so they get right to work, and despite the ominous signs that this isn't just another greedy land-developer or bitter landlord, they set up to stay the night. When the sun goes down, the truth comes out: this place might actually be haunted...by sadistic spirits or something much, much deadlier. Written by Anonymous

Horror Film and Black Comedy Strikes Gold
23 May 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A small budget and restrictive shooting schedule did not prevent director Spencer Parsons from producing one of the classic dark comedy horror films. The humor is never heavy handed and always clever, allowing for a true tale of terror to coexist with the satire. The spoofery works beautifully but that does not mean there aren't moments of intense fear and unrelenting ghastliness. There is indeed graphic slaughter and violence as a group of young people fight for their very lives. As an audience we feel their unholy fear yet chuckle at some very sophisticated satire. Ashley Rae Spillers is particularly good and has an innocent quality that only accentuates a smoldering sexuality that's mesmerizing. She is magnetic and her scenes light up the screen. The entire cast is nothing less than superb and never lets on that they might be in on some of the bloody jokes. Overall, one of the most significant horror satires in the last ten years, masterfully made, and inspiringly realized.
