GHOST LIGHT is an AFI Graduate Thesis film that has taken the country by storm since it’s premiere in March 2014.
Produced by Ahmed Best (Star Wars, Robot Chicken, Stomp) and written/directed by PJ Germain, the film is a scifi thriller starring Abraham Benrubi (E.R., Bosch, Without a Paddle) as Harvey, an estranged father who, after breaking down on a deserted stretch of Old Route 66, is forced to chase his delinquent son Brandon into the woods of Oklahoma.
Determined to get Brandon to his destination and wash his hands clean of him forever, Harvey follows Brandon to an old, rundown 24 hour diner, where things aren’t as they seem. Unbeknownst to Harvey and his son, a malevolent force is lurking in the shadows, waiting for the moment to strike and separate father and son once and for all.
GHOST LIGHT is inspired by the American Folklore tale of the Spooklight or “Ghost Light” that has plagued Route 66 since the advent of roads.
