If you love a little romance with your spooky vibes, A Ghost Waits is for you! This film recently premiered at Screamfest 2020 and won the best actor, director, and picture at Frightfest 2020!

This was the directorial debut for Adam Stovall and he created movie magic with a remarkable comedy romance. The cast stars MacLeod Andrews (The Siren), Natalie Walker, Sydney Vollmer, and Amanda Miller.

Synopsis for A Ghost Waits

Jack’s job is to fix up the house. Spectral agent Muriel’s eternal task is to haunt it. They should be enemies, but they become fascinated by one another and eventually smitten, leading them to question everything about their work, lives, and decisions. But as pressure mounts for them to fulfil their duties, something’s got to give for the time together they both so desperately want.

When going into this film, think Beetlejuice meets Ghost but with its own originality and uniqueness. I personally loved everything about this film from the story to the perofrmances to the cinematography.

Sometimes love happens in the most inconvenient and unexpected ways, and this is most definitely true in A Ghost Waits. It’s cute, sweet, and just a fun film that everyone can enjoy and most importantly not take too seriously. It has just the right amount of comedy and romance.
