The comedic side of paranormal investigation is on view in the horror/comedy that releases on DVD today.

Released by RLJE Films, DEADTECTIVES originally premiered on Shudder, and was directed by Tony West from a script he wrote with David Clayton Rogers. The cast is headed by Chris Geere, Tina Ivlev, David Newman and Martha Higareda. The synopsis: “A team of reality TV ghost hunters experience true paranormal activity for the first time while filming a make-or-break episode in the most haunted mansion in Mexico. Facing cancellation on the one hand and supernatural entities on the other, the team must figure out a way to bust the ghosts, deliver the episode of a lifetime, and escape with their lives intact.”
