Paramount Home Media Acquires Horror Comedy Ghost Team One
Paramount Home Media Distribution
May 16, 2013
Paramount Home Media Distribution (PHMD) today announced that it has acquired the worldwide distribution rights to the independent film Ghost Team One. Produced by Flying Monkeys Entertainment and Foresight Entertainment, Ghost Team One is a subversive horror send-up and an official selection at the 2013 Slamdance Film Festival.
The film 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) and Adam Mutchler, directed by Ben Peyser (“Sucks Less with Kevin Smith”) 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”).
A theatrical release of the film is also in the planning stages, with a release date yet to be announced. You can watch a trailer for the film at ShockTillYouDrop.com.
The deal for the film was brokered by Nate Bolotin and Aram Tertzakian of XYZ Films and Chris Sablan of Original Artists.
