New Suburban Gothic trailer is terrorized by ghosts

Richard Bates, Jr. hit the indie horror scene with his excellently twisted debut Excision, which was a finely crafted slice of horror that was just as nasty as it was funny. Now, in his sophomore effort with Suburban Gothic, Richard Bates, Jr. will explore the lighter side of the supernatural with Matthew Gray Gubler and Kat Dennings leading the way. While I get the feeling that trailer is hiding a lot of the film’s charm, Gubler and Dennings seem like a perfect fit for a film that blends both horror and humor. Horror and humor that apparently works as the early word on this one is that it’s most definitely worth checking out.

Look for Suburban Gothic on VOD this January 30th, 2015.

Raymond has a prestigious MBA, but he can’t find work. He can also channel the paranormal, but chatting with a cute girl still mystifies him. Kicked out of his apartment, Raymond returns home to his overbearing mother, his ex-jock father, and some beer-bellied former classmates. When a vengeful ghost starts terrorizing his small town home, Raymond the city-boy has to recruit Becca, the badass local bartender, to solve the mystery of the spirit threatening their lives.

Suburban Gothic also stars Ray Wise, Sally Kirkland, Jeffrey Combs, and John Waters.

  1. I saw this at a festival earlier this year. I quite liked it. More of a film to have a relaxing Sunday arvo beer with than anything else. Really charming though. Sort of felt like the pilot for a TV series at times, and I could handle a spinoff show with these two leads doing their thing.

      1. I didn’t realise this was the same dude who did Excision. I have had that sitting beside my TV for ages. Seems a very different film.

      2. Yea, man, it looks much different. Excision has a lot of dark humor, but it leans much more on its horror elements. This one looks like a lot of fun, though.
