The best ghost story I've ever seen!
5 January 2013 | by peggywoolseySee all my reviews

I loved the industrious, down to earth character, with the unbelievable name of Richard Scarry. His partner Dave with an opposite personality type, played a perfect foil. The quirky character Ginger increased their interest of the story. Richard's mom and Richard's priest from childhood are played by big name stars Nancy Lenehan & Barry Bostwick. Richard and Dave play real estate agents who want to buy a fixer upper, with a plan to fix and flip. An unscrupulous agent in their office sells an unmarketable property to them. As they start renovations, they discover why the property is under priced. When they hold an open house, their clients run the gamut of real estate shoppers. The hideous situation turns into a hysterical comedy! This little independent film gave me more huge guffaws, than most studio comedies. This is a must see!
