About the Ghost House 💬

Jim (James Landry Hébert) and Julie (Scout Taylor-Compton) are vacationing in Thailand where Julie falls in love with photographing the Thai ''Ghost Houses'' that are believed to give spirits shelter and comfort. A couple of British travelers take them on an adventure to the countryside with the promise of showing Jim and Julie a ghost house graveyard where the old houses are discarded. After leaving the graveyard with a souvenir, Julie becomes cursed and is increasingly plagued by visits from a malevolent spirit, Watabe (Wen-Chu Yang), that threatens both her sanity and her life. After Julie is hospitalized in a state of terror, Jim must find a way to lift the curse in three days before Julie loses her soul to the ghost world forever. Through an act of desperation, Jim enlists the help of a shady ex-pat named Reno (Mark Boone Junior) who takes the couple on a journey deep into the jungle in the hope that a witch doctor can provide a solution to their problem.


In Thailand, almost every home and business has a small Ghost House just outside of it. The Ghost Houses are used to shelter the spirits that live on the land, particularly spirits of ancestors who have passed. Providing a Ghost House helps to ensure that harmony and serenity will come to the property and its owner, the idea being that if the ghosts have their own dwelling in which to reside they will not haunt the main house or building. To ensure the spirits are content in their abode they are provided with offerings of food, drinks, garlands, and incense. If properly provided for the spirit guardians will protect the dwelling and bring wealth and prosperity, and if not, the ghosts become very restless, unhappy and sometimes even lash out at the living...


Thailand is a place of both mystery and contradictions. Bangkok during the day and night are two totally different worlds. A bright, modern city gives way to a seedy, bustling nightlife full of danger and excitement. To add to the dichotomy, you drive just outside of this metropolis and you find yourself in the thick of the jungle. Thailand is a very spiritual place with an abundance of holy sites but it is also famously an adult playground, with red-light districts that cater to your darkest impulses. The Thai people identify as Buddhist, but cling to ancient tribal and Hindi superstitions from their distant past. And EVERYONE believes in ghosts. There are plenty of practical reasons to want to shoot a film in Thailand (cheap, experienced crews, strong film infrastructure, tons of intrinsic production value, etc), but it is these contradictions that draw me, as a filmmaker, to Thailand. The country itself will be a character in our film.

One trip, we found ourselves exploring a remote area a few hours south of Bangkok when we came across what can only be described as a GHOST HOUSE GRAVEYARD, a place where locals had dumped nearly a hundred or so discarded ghost houses in a jungle clearing. The tiny, broken structures still had trinkets and offerings left inside. We began picking things out of them and taking lots of pictures, joking with each other about how encroaching on this place and disturbing these castoff ghost houses was obviously a really bad idea. When the local driver we had hired heard about what we had been up to he was visibly upset, and wouldn't even consider the idea of us bringing a ghost house back with us. It was then we knew we had an interesting idea for a movie. The myth and superstitions surrounding GHOST HOUSES is rich and haunting, and has yet to be explored in any western films. Combine this with the exotic locales and dangerous allure of Bangkok and we knew we had beginnings of a great film.

As a director, I want to take a less is more approach in regard to our scares, building tension by playing on our character's vulnerabilities and helplessness of being trapped in a foreign country with time running out. Tonally, it will be a closer cousin to films like THE EXORCIST or THE CONJURING than say FRIDAY THE 13TH or SAW. And while the story is set in Thailand, it will not be a typical Asian ghost film, nor will it be a straight-up American supernatural thriller but rather a hybrid of the two. We will certainly incorporate some techniques found in Eastern horror films, but the storytelling style will be distinctly American. We certainly are not trying to entirely reinvent the supernatural horror film here, but I think this hybrid approach will certainly yield something fresh and interesting (and very terrifying).
