Funny fast passed horror comedy buoyed by an extremely appealing central character played wonderfully by the adorable Mathew Gary Grubler. In fact, all the characters in this film are appealing even the spirits and Raymond’s foul mouthed redneck dad. Super crisp direction and a solid script make this gem worth several visits.

Self awareness, excessive racial/sexual humor, and wit fail to overcome the unlikable main character in this dark comedy about exorcising a ghost.

Definitely a fun dark comedy. I enjoyed the soundtrack and how it didn't take itself too seriously. The Dad is written as the most awful bigoted racist stereotype football coach I've ever seen but the actor playing him pulls it off and managed to make it fun to hate him. Not many big scares, some gross out stuff, lots of emo humor. I give it 5 because I think it hit what it was aiming for, a light-hearted watch.
