OUT NOW / RATED M / 101 MINS DI­REC­TOR Ben Lawrence CAST Ja­son King, no ghosts

FIRST, A CAVEAT: this is not about ghosts. There’s about five min­utes of ac­tual ghost-hunt­ing in the 101-minute run-time, and at no point does Pa­trick Swayze sex­ily shape a clay pot with any­one. This doc­u­men­tary fol­lows Ja­son King, a (mostly) sweet-na­tured lunk and part-time para­nor­mal in­ves­ti­ga­tor, who is haunted by his own trau­matic past and dys­func­tional fam­ily dy­nam­ics. King and doco maker Ben Lawrence dig into King’s re­pressed mem­o­ries of his hor­ri­fy­ing child­hood to, in King’s words, “help me move on from my­self”— but the dis­cov­er­ies grow steadily more dis­turb­ing un­til they un­cover a grotesque fam­ily se­cret that leads to a po­lice man­hunt. Not one for a first date. TK
