About the Movie
When Richard Scarry, a too-honest-for-his-own-good real estate agent, discovers the house he's invested in to raise money for his mother's hospital bills is haunted, he learns how scary the housing market really is. With the aid of his best friend who refuses to go inside, an exorcist who loves craftsman style architecture, and an eccentric ghost rights activist/blogger/waitress, Richard gamely tries to get rid of the house and/or its ghostly inhabitants before it's too late. But when an evil spirit decides to move out of the house and into his body, Richard discovers he has a whole new set of possession problems.
Awesome fun witha few frights!
The Selling is a great example of the Little Movie That Could. With a small budget, a first-time director, and a cast of mostly unknowns; it COULD have been a disaster. Most films with these conditions end up with bad acting, predictable dialogue, and aren't over soon enough. But The Selling avoids all of these pitfalls and just chugs right along, and ends up being a delightful, entertaining movie with heart (complete with pumping blood) and just enough laughs to keep older kids and adults alike entertained throughout.
Written by and starring Gabe Diani, the movie is filled almost equally with suspense and horror as much as it is slapstick humor and dialogue that would make Abbott and Costello proud. First time director Emily Lou keeps the pace going and makes it seem like this under-exposed cast has been working together for years.
Told without a swear word, this is a GREAT movie for families, although it may be unsuitable for the wee ones due to the blood & scary scenes as well as a quick drug references.
Over all, I gave this movie an 9 out of 10. Not bad at all for some first-time film makers, and I have the feeling its only going to get better from here.
Funny - worth a watch
Good laugh, we enjoyed the hospital scene.
Amazing! And a real treat!
This movie is a must see. Great family flick. Not for small kids but if you have older kids it's just fine. It's so rare to be able to sit down with my husband and 13 year old son and watch a movie that we ALL enjoyed. This movie is hilarious, suspenseful, and intriguing. Imagine that! Amazing directing and acting. Can't wait for it to hit the big screen.
