WHAT IS IT?

A teenage, punk-infused, coming of age, haunted house, mecha anime, ghost-hunting story.


Think SLC Punk meets Thirteen Ghosts meets Friday the 13th: The Series meets that scene in Ghostbusters 2 when the Statue of Liberty dances to Jackie Wilson’s “(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher and Higher."


WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

(Minor Spoilers)

In school, there are rumors about what happened to Ami’s family and why she’s in foster care. She seems to just want to disappear herself when she goes alone to the Old James House and vanishes. Buzz and Rip go looking for her in the house the next day and run into rival band, The Nuclear Bastards, and find out firsthand why it’s the “house that kills people.”


Meanwhile, Ami begins to act as a conduit for the Old James House to retrieve certain haunted objects that were once a part of it. Determined to accomplish this task on her own and break free from the House, Ami begins to learn the full power of the haunted objects and the Old James House.
