Video: Mystery Team At The Haunted Hotel
One of the great ironies of my Comic Con experience was that, even though I interviewed the guys behind Mystery Team, ran into them on a daily basis and spent my last night in San Diego having dinner with them, I never actually managed to see the movie. What I did catch, though, was a short they made exclusively for their Comic Con panel, titled "The Case of the Haunted Hotel." I hear from sources in the know that it's a pretty good distillation of their childlike/adult humor, packing in plenty of condom and rape jokes along with a genuine interest in ice cream.
And now you can see it for yourself! The entire short has been made available online, for those of you who didn't make it to Comic Con or were just too lazy to show up there on Sunday. Check out Jason (Donald Glover), Duncan (D.C. Pierson) and Charlie (Dominic Dierkes) in their efforts to find the hotel's moaning ghost. Like the feature film itself, which opens in Austin at the end of this month, the short was directed by Dan Eckman and produced by Meggie McFadden.
