In 'Caught Dead,' four ghosts are trapped for might be eternity in an abandoned New England prison. One of the ghosts possessed by some unspeakable evil, which the other three ghosts suspect also resides in the prison. Entertainment is scarce when youre dead and trapped, so they make do with what they have by terrorizing the few paranormal television shows that come to town.
Things change, however, when two couples buy the prison and demolish it, replacing it with a swanky resort. One couple comes from old money New England, and the other is an attractive young entrepreneur and her deadbeat husband. The ghosts watch as she and the other owners butt heads over various issues in the resort, all the while trying to deal with the anonymous evil force, which seems to be growing stronger as time goes by. While the entrepreneurs marriage is falling apart and she finds herself becoming more and more attracted in a very eerie way to one of the ghosts, the presence of the force becomes known even to the living and paranormal experts are called to find a solution. The ghosts are forced to form a bizarre alliance with a ghost hunter, her cameraman, and a chef and a waitress from the resort in order to save their own butts and perhaps the entire world. When all seems lost, help comes from an offbeat bartender with a love of exotic drinks and more than a few ties to the Big Man Upstairs.
Trading Spaces meets Ghost.
Focus. Who's the main character? What's the problem? If the problem is that this chick is attracted to a ghost, well, hell, who hasn't been? If it's the anonymous evil...oh yawn. Evil can't be anonymous. It not only needs a face, it needs fava beans and bib.
Focus on the person who carries the story.
