From frosh director Emily Lou comes a pretty funny looking new horror comedy entitled The Selling of Scarry Manor. The official trailer went online this morning and is definitely worth a peek. Formerly known as The Selling, Artist View Entertainment’s haunted house flick stars for Barry Bostwick.
“Richard Scarry is too nice. He’s a real estate agent who tries to talk people out of buying houses they can’t afford. When his business partner Dave Ross comes up with a scheme to flip an old house for profit, he only agrees because he needs to find a way to pay for his sick mother’s medical bills.
As Richard and Dave start fixing up the house for buyers, it becomes obvious why their real estate nemesis, Mary Best, was so eager to pass the house along to them. Disembodied voices tell them to leave, walls bleed, and a portal to the spirit realm opens in an upstairs closet. In short, the house is haunted.
Leveraged to the hilt, Richard must figure out a way to get rid of the house before its ghostly inhabitants ruin his life. He enlists the aid of his intimidating old Sunday school teacher Father Jimmy to perform an exorcism and a Ghost Right’s Activist named Ginger Sparks to conduct a seance, each with disastrous results.
As the pressure mounts, Richard finds someone to take possession of the house. But when an evil spirit decides to move out of the house and into Richard’s body, he soon discovers he has a whole new set of possession problems.”
