Welcomed Laughs and Proper Chills in ‘Ghost Team’ Trailer

I’m a big fan of comedic horror. Horror and comedy are basically my go-to genres, so when you combine the two, I’m in heaven. There’s a reason movies like Tucker and Dale vs. Evil, or Evil Dead 2, or even Ghost Team One – a film that obviously sports a pretty similar name to Ghost Team – the topic of debate in this particular instance, all occupy room in my physical or digital collection. They’re awesome movies that make me laugh as often as jump.

That’s also the reason there’s a high probability that Ghost Team finds its way into my collection as well, occupying space with awesome gems like the three aforementioned films.

Ghost Team looks hilarious in a quirky way, and I’m juiced to see it. Take one peak at the attached trailer and you might find yourself in agreement!

Oliver Irving directs. The film stars Jon Heder, David Krumholtz, Melonie Diaz, Paul W. Downs, Joel Marsh Garland, Justin Long, Tom Schiller, and Amy Sedaris.

This one debuts exclusively on Google Play on July 21st. A theatrical release is tapped to follow beginning August 12th.

Synopsis: Louis is a regular guy. He runs a small print-and-copy shop in a Long Island strip mall. He drinks beer with his best buddy, Stan. He hunts for evidence that ghosts exist.

Believe it or not, Louis is normal, one of many thousands of people who consider themselves amateur ghost-hunters. It’s an escape from the drudgery of his daily routine and a reminder that there may be more to life than he knows.

When a customer walks into his print shop and mentions possible paranormal activity at an abandoned farm outside of town, Louis sees a chance to finally indulge his hobby for real. With the help of his depressed best friend, a fuck-up nephew, an overly-serious mall cop, a hack cable-access psychic, a whip-smart beautician and a van filled with amateur equipment, Louis is determined to catch some ghosts on film.

But poltergeists are the least of what the team finds in the abandoned McIntosh estate. What begins as a bumbling attempt to explore the farm soon becomes a hilarious and terrifying race to escape it alive.
