Press Release: Los Angeles, CA (Oct. 15, 2019) – DARKCOAST unleashes ‘GHOST IN THE GRAVEYARD’ onto digital streaming platforms this November.
The directorial debut from Charlie Comparetto (The Brawler), GHOST IN THE GRAVEYARD, is a haunting teen thriller starring Jake Busey (Mr. Robot, Stranger Things, Starship Troopers), Disney XD star, Kelli Berglund (Lab Rats, The Goldbergs), Marvel’s Royce Johnson (Daredevil), Golden Globe nominee, Nikki Blonsky (Hairspray), and three-time award winner, Maria Olsen (Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightening Thief).
“Comparetto’s confident direction, strong performances from leads Kelli Berglund and Olivia Larsen, and Przemyslaw Reut’s fluid cinematography all contribute to a film that is both eerily unnerving and entertaining,” wrote Morbidly Beautiful.
Based on the children’s nighttime hide and seek game of the same name, GHOST IN THE GRAVEYARD follows the ghost of a local girl, Martha (Shiloh Verrico), who tragically died playing the game as a child. Vengeful and unforgiving, Martha returns to haunt the now teenagers who witnessed her murder. The teen longtime blamed for the incident, Sally Sullivan (Kelli Berglund), takes it upon herself to solve the ghost story and put Martha to rest in peace for good. As the mystery of Martha’s return unravels, deep secrets are revealed that will have consequences for everyone involved.
Ghost in the Graveyard… one, two, three… Ghost in the Graveyard… can’t catch me…
“The score puts you right in the middle of the feeling you get while telling ghost stories under the sheets or around the campfire. That feeling of heightened intensity and eerie calm... All these elements together become a perfect storm that creates this world that makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up a little,” wrote Nightmarish Conjurings.
After a successful run on the festival circuit, GHOST IN THE GRAVEYARD was selected for numerous Official Sections (Texas Frightmares, Dances With Films, Cinema NYC) and gained several accolades, including the ‘Gold Award’ at NYC’s Indie Film Festival and ‘Best Feature’ at Peekskill Film Festival. The script also received much recognition, as a finalist at Hollywood Shriekfest and London’s Table Read My Screenplay.
DarkCoast will release GHOST IN THE GRAVEYARD on digital streaming platforms on Nov. 5th (Amazon, Hoopla, Vimeo on Demand, FANDANGO).
Alongside Jake Busey (Ray Donovan, The Predator, From Dusk to Dawn), Kelli Berglund (Animal Kingdom), Royce Johnson (Let’s Be Cops), Nikki Blonsky (The Last Movie Star) and Maria Olsen (American Horror Story), GHOST IN THE GRAVEYARD stars Shiloh Verrico (Crown Vic, Stray Dolls), Olivia Larsen (The Last Halloween), Zebedee Row (Vinyl, The Truth About Lies) and Jason James Richter (Free Willy franchise).
