Christopher Webster [Celluloid 04.05.11] movie trailer news horror comedy

"Five Bedrooms. Four Baths. Twelve Ghosts."

This trailer for a new horror comedy called The Selling (formerly "The Selling of Scary Manor") has been floating around for a day or so. Not sure who disovered it first, but I just watched it over at 28DLA. Anyway, it looks to be a pretty funny little indie about the trials one real estate agent faces when trying to sell a haunted house.

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.

The script was written by Gabriel Diani and is directed by Emily Lou. It stars Gabriel Diani, Janet Varney, Jonathan Klein, Etta Devine, With Nancy Lenehan And Barry Bostwick as "Father Jimmy."

Watch for it at the tail end of 2011.

Trailer after the break!

The trailer was first updated at the Indie' Film Catalogue on FB April 3rd and then I got the e-mail update April 4th. Either way, it is nice to see a horror film with a little comedy thrown in. The trailer made me laugh:) -Mike
