Extra Ordinary Unclassified 18+
Will Forte, Australian comedian Claudia O'Doherty and Irish stand-up Maeve Higgins ain’t afraid of no ghosts in this supernatural side-splitter, an audience favourite at this year’s SXSW.
Life for small-town driving instructor Rose couldn’t be more average, although she boasts a lively past. As a child, she deployed her psychic talents on otherworldly cases, working with her paranormal investigator dad. Then tragedy struck, and she’s ignored her gift ever since – until an American rock star and wannabe Satanist uses dark magic to resurrect his career, embroiling Rose’s new driving student and his teenage daughter in his unearthly plans.
Charmingly directed by first-time Irish filmmakers Enda Loughman and Mike Ahern, and earning a place alongside recent horror-comedy greats such as What We Do in the Shadows and Housebound (both MIFF 2014), Extra Ordinary is a devilishly fun and funny delight.
“A kind of tea-cosy Ghostbusters that’s consistently funny in a pleasingly off-kilter way … an accessibly off-the-wall comedy.” – Variety
