Saturday Morning Massacre (with "Merman")

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

A team of amateur paranormal investigators struggle to make ends meet by debunking reports of supernatural incidents. On the verge of bankruptcy, they take on a case involving rumors of suspicious disappearances linked with an abandoned schoolhouse. Discounting stories of satanic practices, the team proceeds, desperately chasing cash and the opportunity to fulfill their mission – to catch a real ghost.

On a tour guided by the local sheriff, the crew learns of the schoolhouse’s gruesome past. Ignoring advice to spend the night in a hotel, they set up their gear and prepare for nightfall.  When the sun goes down, the truth comes out: the schoolhouse might actually be haunted by sadistic spirits… or something even worse.

Horror-comedy Saturday Morning Massacre is a bloody quasi-parody of Scooby-Doo and a cautionary tale regarding the consequences of meddling with the supernatural.
