THE PLOT THUS FAR
Two roommates deathly afraid of ghosts both fall in love with a girl who believes their home is haunted.
WHAT WE THOUGHT
“Ghost Team One” is a pretty intriguing movie, but not on the premise. It’s a spoof movie that uses predominantly Latino actors and no one bats an eye at it. The Wayans would’ve been constantly reminding you that they’re black every 5 minutes, but “Ghost Team One” could care less. They’ve got jokes about boning and the supernatural to dish out. Laughs are had, then we start going downhill.
The minute it turns into a straightforward Paranormal Activity parody, half of the audience is shut down. The jokers get cruder, the hint of boob gets higher and nothing really happens. It’s a quick race to the end, but nobody is left satisfied. Still, I can’t say that I hate it. The film is an interesting exercise in targeting genre material outside of the familiar American comfort zones.
The Blu-Ray comes with deleted/extended scenes, video diary, bloopers and a behind-the-scenes featurette. The A/V Quality is pretty sharp with a 1080p transfer and DTS-HD 5.1 master audio track. The DTS-HD 5.1 track gets to setup a stage that plays well with the limited environment. Plus, the jump scares aren’t terrible. In the end, I’d recommend a purchase to the curious.
