The trailer and poster for a horror/comedy entitled THE SELLING OF SCARRY MANOR can be seen below. The picture was originally titled THE SELLING before distributor Artist View Entertainment tacked on the rest of it. The amendment assures the audience that there is a supernatural aspect, but without watching the trailer, the word Scarry just seems like a typo. Here is the lengthy synopsis:
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.
Leveraged to the hilt, Richard must figure out a way to get rid of the house before its ghostly inhabitants ruin his life. He enlists the aid of his intimidating old Sunday school teacher Father Jimmy to perform an exorcism and a Ghost Right’s Activist named Ginger Sparks to conduct a seance, each with disastrous results.
As the pressure mounts, Richard finds someone to take possession of the house. But when an evil spirit decides to move out of the house and into Richard’s body, he soon discovers he has a whole new set of possession problems.
The haunted house flick is directed by Emily Lou. Gabriel Diani penned the screenplay and stars as Richard Scarry. The cast also includes It stars Janet Varney, Jonathan Klein, Etta Devine, Nancy Lenehan and Barry Bostwick (THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW). Expect it to be released later this year.
