The Haunt is on...
Where does all your money go?To date we have self funded the film 100%. But as we get into the final stages of post production, we need a little help from our friends. Here's how your generous dollars will help:
- Sound mixing
- Box art
- Color correction
- E&O insurance
- MPAA Rating (Did you know it costs $3,000 to get one? Yep, we're gonna need that, too!)
These are all the things we need to do to reach the finish line. We hope you'll help!

Andrew P. Jones (Writer/Director/Exec-Producer)
Andrew began his career in special effects providing makeup effects, props, and puppets for films and TV shows such as Hook, Batman, Groundhog Day, In Living Color, Roseanne, Muppets Tonight, Everybody Loves Raymond, Married With Children and more. Turning his attention to producing and directing in the late 1990's, Andrew directed live action pilots, documentaries, and shorts, as well as producing and directing for his award winning children's series, Field Trip which ran for three seasons.

Linara Washington ("Kate"/Exec-Producer)
Linara's professional acting career began on the stages of Chicago's most acclaimed theaters including The Steppenwolf, Lookingglass, Northlight, and Victory Gardens. She has appeared in over 50 commercials nationally and internationally. A supporting role as Keisha in the film Barbershop 2 motivated her move to LA where she has since enjoyed recurring roles on American Dreams, E.R., and most recently NCIS. Other notable TV credits include Private Practice, Touch, Castle, CSI, and Ghost Whisperer among others. Film credits include Barbershop 2, The Express, Stranger Than Fiction, and most recently Linara was the only female actor featured in the Brad Pitt film, Killing Them Softly, which debuted at the Cannes Film Festival. Apparitional is Linara's debut as a Prodcuer.
Jeffrey S.S. Johnson ("Joel")
Jeffrey Johnson is an actor/musician/writer originally from Southboro, Massachusetts. Perhaps best known for the heartfelt feature film Letters to God, he received rave reviews for his portrayal as Brady McDaniels, a troubled soul who finds inspiration through the wisdom of a young man stricken with cancer. He starred in the recently released Worth with Eric Roberts and Corey Feldman and is also starring in the soon-to-be-released Apparitional. Television credits include Vegas, NCIS, Bones, Lie to Me, Criminal Minds, The Secret Life of the American Teenager, Burn Notice, Unhitched, CSI, Without a Trace, Barbershop, The District, Boomtown among others. Jeff is the Voice of T-Mobile in a national campaign of multiple TV, radio and Internet spots.
Charley Koontz ("Berger")
Charley Koontz is best known for his work as 'Fat Neil' in the sitcom Community, currently in its fourth season on NBC. His first film, Rubber directed by Quentin Dupieux, premiered at the 2010 Cannes
Film Festival and has garnered an enthusiastic and dedicated cult following. He worked with Dupieux again in the 2011 film Wrong currently in theaters. Charley's other television credits include Perfect Couples (NBC), Gigantic (TeenNick), Awake (NBC) and he is set to recur on Royal Pains for USA in its fifth season.

John Zderko ("Roger")
After a successful career in business, John discovered acting in 2005 and never looked back! Recent TV credits include The Mentalist and Criminal Minds. In addition to Apparitional, John recently wrapped a science fiction feature called Swerve and a comedy entitled Brad’s Untitled Restaurant Project, both of which are currently in post-production. Recent theatre credits include a well-received L.A. production of Judgment At Nuremberg alongside a fantastic cast that included Oscar nominee Katharine Ross. He currently studies with Paul Kampf at Performing Arts Institute. Finally, John loved EVERY minute of shooting Apparitional with all of his new friends, even freezing his ass off at 3AM in a prison in Missouri in November!
Dee Wallace ("Ms. Simon")
Dee Wallace first broke into both TV and cinema screens in the mid 1970s. Her appearances in several well remembered horror and sci-fi films quickly gained her a cult following amongst the fantasy film fans. Poor Dee always seemed to be on the wrong side of some malevolent person or evil creature; she was pursued by a clan of cannibal killers in The Hills Have Eyes, terrorized by a pack of werewolves in the superb The Howling, got a break from the horror, as a sympathetic mum in the mega sci-fi hit E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, and nearly ends up lunch for a rabid St. Bernard in the heart stopping Cujo. This time she's calling the shots as the ball-busting network executive, Ms. Simon.
