A terrible yet lovable take on the haunted-house yarn.
It's not the derivative scares and rudimentary effects that keep this low-budget effort percolating but the improvisational energy of Mr. Santos and Mr. Villarreal, whose ease, chemistry and humor never flag.
The scariest thing about "Ghost Team One" is the horror-comedy's blatant racial minstrelsy.
Destined to be a streaming-video hit with truant frat boys everywhere.
Thanks to the shakiest of shaky-cams, you don't know whether to wince or lose your lunch.
It's spectacularly unoriginal.
Ghost Team One may be the scariest picture this Halloween season, demonstrating that material so blatantly offensive can still be acquired by a major studio, and released mostly without comment.
Really runs out of steam near the end, but there's still a nice batch of raunchy laughs here.
An unyielding exercise in extreme pain.
Kind of a cross between Paranormal Activity and American Pie.
Rather than going straight for the laughs and only the laughs, Ghost Team One delivers two well developed, likable characters that turn the film into an effective narrative capable of sustaining the best and worst of its comedic repertoire.
Not funny enough to be a complete satire and not serious enough to be a healthy evolution to the haunted house genre of film, "Ghost Team One" takes the found footage, "Paranormal Activity" approach to what can only be described as a failed raunchy comedy, with very little raunch and almost no comedy. With so much potential for comedy and sex in an R rated film such as this, the team never really allows for anything the viewer may actually enjoy. Instead, we're left to the same devices we constantly expect, with nosey neighbors, a high strung, recovering addict roommate, and a love triangle between the gorgeous bombshell, the wannabe ladies man, and the geek. Were this to take on the form of a National Lampoon film with at least the hint of sexuality, this film could have reached a much larger audience of college kids and minorities, but instead, it falls completely flat, only earning its rating from its constant talk of sex and masturbation as well as a scene where a ghost goes down on one of the main characters, but even this isn't treated with humor and instead is robbed of all its hilarity, remaining stoic and not the least bit scary. If you're going to play this right, lose the clothes, up the ante, and grow some fucking balls, because "Ghost Team One" is a complete waste on all fronts.
Sergio: I would like to report an emergency, there's a demon in my house... ... They hung up on me.
Here is the humorous plot synopsis for Ghost Team One: In early 2012, filmmaker Billy Chen answered a Craigslist ad looking for someone to document possible paranormal behavior. What he found were two sexually retarded friends (Carlos Santos and J.R. Villarreal) scheming to impress a beautiful woman (Fernanda Romero) who believed their house was haunted. They were willing to face their darkest fears to get in her pants, but found themselves much closer to a demon whore than the woman of their dreams. Warning: This film is not for those with weak hearts or strong genitals.
