Both Matthew Gray Gubler and Kat Dennings find most of their time occupied with their TV gigs, the former on "Criminal Minds," the latter on "2 Broke Girls." So one would wager that they'd be picky about the movies they make during their downtime. But as the trailer for "Surburban Gothic" suggests, perhaps that's not necessarily so.

Both Matthew Gray Gubler and Kat Dennings find most of their time occupied with their TV gigs, the former on "Criminal Minds," the latter on "2 Broke Girls." So one would wager that they'd be picky about the movies they make during their downtime. But as the trailer for "Surburban Gothic" suggests, perhaps that's not necessarily so.

Co-written and directed by Richard Bates Jr. ("Excision," which also starred Gubler), the horror comedy adds Ray Wise and Barbara Niven in supporting roles, and follows college graduate Raymond, who is having trouble getting his life on track and moves back in with his parents. But things go from bad to worse when supernatural weirdness begins to follow him around, but luckily he finds an ally in a quirky local bartender. Basically, it's pretty broad (and low budget) stuff with everything pitched toward camp but perhaps not quite working. At least not in trailer form. But hey, there's a John Waters cameo.

"Suburban Gothic" makes its World Premiere at the Fantasia Film Festival this month. Watch below.
