Just yesterday the 18th annual Fantasia International Film Festival made their first major announcement, gearing up to take Montreal by storm with three weeks of inspiration and excitement starting July 17 until August 5, 2014.
Today, Bloody Disgusting is excited to share exclusively the first images from Richard Bates Jr.’s Suburban Gothic, his follow-up to the Sundance success, Excision. It will World Premiere at Fantasia!
“Raymond has a prestigious MBA, but he can’t find work. He can channel the paranormal, but chatting with a cute girl mystifies him. Kicked out of his big city apartment, Raymond returns home to his overbearing mother, ex-jock father, and beer-bellied classmates. But when a vengeful ghost terrorizes the small town, the city-boy recruits Becca, a badass local bartender, to solve the mystery of the spirit threatening everyone’s lives.”
Suburban Gothic is described as an eccentric comedy/horror that stars Matthew Gray Gubler, Kat Dennings, Ray Wise, Sally Kirkland, Jeffrey Combs and John Waters, and riffs on everything from classic supernatural horror and outsider teen comedies to the “Hardy Boys” and “Scooby-Doo”!
