"Ghost System" Project Prospectus
If you had a machine that could summon spirits of the dead, who would you want to meet? Well, there is a system that can reunite you with those you've lost: family members, friends or lovers. But one word of caution...
SOME SPIRITS SHOULD NEVER BE CALLED.
The horror film boom shows no signs of waning. In fact, its popularity continues to grow. The bone-chilling computer game and full-length feature movie, "Bio-Hazard," and the Hollywood remake of the Japanese horror phenomenon, "The Ring," were both global hits, the latter earning over 100 million dollars at the box office. With Japanese horror now beginning to earn worldwide attention and acclaim, here comes "Ghost System."
The barrier between life and death has been destroyed
Why do people have to die? Will the afterlife forever elude science? Death persists as the quintessential mystery to life? Its mystery has instilled fear, demanded reverence and permeated the thoughts and actions of mortal Man throughout Time. And so it is the theme of "Ghost System."
A scientist devises a system that enables one to access the thoughts, or "ghosts," of the dead.
The dead coming to life...
The fear born from their communion...
the destruction of all that separates life and death.
A Breeding "System"
The "Ghost System" was designed to grow and expand to a variety of "horror genre" delivery channels: the Internet, Movies, Publications and Games. In fact, "Ghost System" is already breeding.
