Sometimes, we get the chance to see good unknown films, and sometimes we are just tortured by horrendous releases. Sadly, Ghost Team One is the latter.
The plot – If there is one – is a bad copy of the Paranormal Activity franchise. It follows 2 Latino roommates, Sergio (Carlos Santos) and Brad (J.R. Villareal), who feel the presence of a ghost. This leads them to discover that their share house was once owned by a crazy Vietnamese prostitute who murdered a couple of people there back in the day, and whose own body had gone missing forever.
During a party, they meet Fernanda (Fernanda Romero), a hot chick crazy about the paranormal. This is reason enough for Sergio and the always-horny Brad to come up with the idea of creating a team of ghost hunters, just to have Fernanda close to them. They don’t suspect that the ghost will manifest only during sexual situations, and will soon take possession of the Latino duo’s aggressive roommate, Chuck (Tony Cavalero).
With that storyline, the end result of Ghost Team One is pretty obvious. The film is an hour and a half of cinematic torture, with terrible performances and an excess of sexual jokes that are not funny, with some even recycled from other films, like the Scary Movie franchise, or Marlon Wayan’s The Haunted House.
This low-budget film at some stage becomes a bad homemade video, when Chuck is possessed and dons geisha-style makeup and a robe to speak in an unfunny attempt at a humorous Asian accent. It’s all just plain bad as the horrible horny gay jokes emerge, making the last 15 minutes of the film among the most disgusting experiences of cinematic history.
Overall, despite a couple of Latino jokes and Fernanda Romero’s beauty, we have nothing good to say about this unfunny, predictable and poorly acted film, which should not be ever released on DVD. It feels like a bad fan-film from YouTube.
Ghost Team One is now available in DVD and Digital format.
