Log Line


A single mother moves back home to escape an abusive marriage. By investigating a murder that traumatized her family during Civil War times she unleashes a terrifying spirit. She must uncover the ghost’s tragic secret to protect her daughter and save her own life.

Background


I had the idea for this script when I started working on Genealogy and found out that a great uncle, who looked eerily similar, died young in the Second World War. So the idea was that every ghost wants something, like not to be left behind in a battlefield in a foreign country. And another idea was ‘why do all ghosts have to be hostile’, why can’t they be friendly like ‘Casper’ and still creep the shit outta you…
