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

Superb Horror Satire
26 August 2015 | by dianerpessler-46164See all my reviews

Brilliant satire of horror films and a stunning horror movie in its own right. The atmosphere is incredibly thick with terror as a ghost hunter group investigates whether an abandoned mansion is indeed haunted. The writing is sharp and funny but there are still plenty of startling moment and sequences of pure fright. At times things get pretty intense but the film never loses its sense of humor nor its way. The cast is wonderful with Ashley Rae Spillers (Last Vegas; The Love Inside Me) giving a delightful performance as the leader of the group. Spillers is a young talent surely destined for big things in the near future. Anyone who enjoys scary movies with clever plot twists and funny moments will certainly love Saturday Morning Mystery.
