Suburban Gothic Review

matthew gray gubler

Raymond has all the qualifications  but he cannot find work.  Kicked out of his big city apartment, Raymond returns home to his parents house. But when a ghost terrorizes the small town, the city-boy seeks the aid of Becca, a cute local bartender, to solve the mystery of the spirit that is causing havoc in Raymond’s home.

Kat Dennings, Ray Wise and Matthew Gray Gubler need I say more? This film is the most perfect combination of comedy and horror I have ever seen.  A very campy style comedy matches Raymond’s (Gubler) personality and all three characters have all sets of comedy covered. Theres Raymond’s Campy humor, Becca’s (Dennings) very crude humor and finally Donald, Raymond’s father who has very outdated views and almost offensive humor in parts crossed with some crudeness. Donald echoes the vibe of Robert De Niro’s character Jack Byrnes in Meet the Fockers.

This film is hilarious to watch from start to finish an absolute triumph in Independent cinema, the film was never boring, as the serious tones define the story the comedy and humor take you through the parts that would otherwise be a slow set up. The comedy is used perfectly and it creates such a wonderfully fun and entertaining experience. A quick and interesting cameo from John Waters adds the icing on the cake in this very spooky comedic tale.



Kat Dennings is wonderful, so is Matthew Gray Gubler and his unusual fashion sense, but it is Ray Wise as Raymond’s dad who steals the show. The one liners, the antics, without him in there the comedy would of been too stretched for me, Ray was the middle element needed to balance the comedy and what a fantastic job. This movie has stolen the show at Screamfest and everyone is raving about its awesomeness. Us included.

A campy fun ride that gives you thrills, spills and chills, a wonderful piece of cinema.
