We’ve heard a little about Ghost House, the Thailand-shot spooker starring Scout Taylor-Compton, but we can now get a good idea of what to expect with this trailer which emerged over the weekend. I really liked Taylor-Compton in Rob Zombie’s Halloween films, and it’s always good to see her treading horror territory again. Plus, the trailer delivers some pretty cool scares.
Rich Ragsdale directed the film, which sees a young couple trekking in Thailand become the target of a malevolent spirit after they unwittingly desecrate a Ghost House.
Here’s the official synopsis:
“A young couple, Jim and Julie, are vacationing in Thailand where Julie falls in love with photographing small shrines called “Ghost Houses” that are believed to give spirits shelter and comfort. A couple of British travelers take them into the countryside with the promise of showing Jim and Julie a ghost house graveyard where many of the shrines are discarded. After leaving the graveyard with a souvenir, Julie is increasingly plagued by visits from a malevolent spirit that threatens both her sanity and her life. After Julie is literally frozen in a state of terror, Jim must find a way to lift the curse before he loses Julie to the ghost world forever.”
Starring alongside Taylor-Compton are James Landry Hébert (Carnage Park, Super 8), Elana Krausz (February) and Sons of Anarchy’s Mark Boone Junior.
Ghost House is due to hit selected US cinemas and VOD on August 25th via Vertical Entertainment.
