OCT – Orlando, FL – Do You Believe In Ghosts? Godbout Entertainment is proud to announce the release of their latest Award-Winning short film called Ghost App. After a successful festival run, the film is now available for rent on AMAZON PRIME.
It’s just like any other night for Sher as she sits down to watch the newest Netflix movie. However, on this night she receives a text from a stranger offering her a chance to download a new app. An app that will let her see what cannot be seen with the naked eye. The other side.
About the film:
This short film is a concept film that was born out of the idea when the Pokemon Go app came out and everyone was walking around in the real world looking for Pokemons. Gerald Godbout thought what if an app would let you see and talk to ghosts and what if these ghosts can not only see and talk to you, but touch you as well. The concept pulls ideas from 13 Ghosts, Poltergeist, and Halloween 3, and injects a new twist that had audiences loving it and talking about it long after the festival was over. With so many shows about ghost hunting currently on tv and the internet, interest in life after death shows no sign of slowing down. During its festival run Ghost App won awards for Best Horror Short, Best Editing, Best Score, and Audience Choice Award.
