Creepy Comedy “Ghost Light” Will Open the Oxford Film Fest at The Ford Center Thursday, February 7
The film will play at 7:15 pm at The Gertrude Ford Center; a Q&A will follow.
Ghost Light is a supernatural comedy with a horrifying twist directed by John Stimpson (The Legend of Lucy Keyes, A Christmas Kiss) and conceived and written by John Stimpson and Geoffrey Taylor. The film stars Carol Kane (The Princess Bride, Addams Family Values), Cary Elwes (Saw, The Princess Bride), and Danielle Campbell (The Originals).
Ghost Light is a haunted comedy about the absurd—but very seriously regarded—superstitions of the theatre, specifically those surrouinding Shakespeare‘s Macbeth. When a disgruntles and arrogant understudy tempts fate by uttering the forbidden name of the “Scottish King” on stage, the sorcery of the Bard’s witches overwhelms the production leading to chaos, misfortune, and death. All’s well that end well . . . but not for everyone.
