For those of you who haven’t heard about the horror-comedy ‘Ghostpuncher’, let me fill you in. ‘Ghostpuncher’ is the brain-child of Gemini award winning actor/writer Jordan McCloskey . Jordan starred on the TV series ‘The Wilkinsons’ and the series ‘Three Chords From the Truth’. Now Jordan has set out to make an unforgettable and completely original movie with blood, gore, creepy ghosts and a few laughs.‘Ghostpuncher’ tells the story of a single father and his son, who have moved into a new house, unaware of the fact that the home is haunted by three spirits. The home now stands on the foundation of where a nineteenth century poor-house once stood. The spirits are that of a mother and her two daughters, who prayed upon and cannibalized the residents of the poor-house in 1897, the family was known as the Collombelles. At first the spirits are curious and playful, but then turn aggressive, eventually possessing the father and making their lives Hell. The son turns to the only place he can think of, the internet. He finds the YouTube commercial of a down and out exorcist, who refers to himself as “Ghostpuncher”. The man claims to be able to punch ghosts right into the ever after, but these ghosts aren’t giving up with out a fight.
Back in June I interviewed Jordan McCloskey about his horror-comedy ‘Ghostpuncher’. Today ‘Ghostpuncher’ announced that both a director and a producer have joined the film.
Trevor Cornish, a short film maker, and an award winning commercial, TV and video game director, has signed on for the project. Cornish’s short film ‘Roland’ premiered in 2013 and has been screened at several film festivals around the world.
Gabriel Napora, the owner of Trinton Films Inc and Tiyabella Visual Effects, will serve as a producer for ‘Ghostpuncher’. Napora recently produced ‘Badge of Honor’ staring Martin Sheen and ‘Juarez 2045’ staring Danny Trejo. Napora produced a short film along side Neill Blomkamp that inspired the film ‘Chappie’. He is also currently involved with projects in development with Paramount, Warner Bros. and Lionsgate.
