Richard Bates Jr., the director of the 2012 visual masterpiece EXCISION, is back in the director’s chair for a new horror comedy starring Matthew Gray Gubler and Kat Dennings. In the film, Raymond (Gubler) hits a low point in life when his unemployment renders him financially unstable, and he is forced to move back in with his parents. While drowning his sorrows at a local pub, he meets Becca (Dennings), a blunt bartender whom he confides in. After revealing to Becca that Raymond actually has a secret ability to see the dead, Becca suggests that he take up a career in paranormal activity. What follows is a hilarious account of a strange friendship and an exploration into the world of the undead.
