Film Review: Red Scream Ghost Hunt (2007)

Red-Scream-Ghost-Hunt-(2007).movie

Rather than a script, we had an idea – “group of ghost hunters exploring the dark passages of the Buffalo Central Terminal (BCT)”. We then took a group of actors and non-actors who happened to have a free weekend and who were interested in being able to explore the BCT and play “ghost hunt”. Groups of actors were given a camera, some simple … Continue reading
