Suburban Gothic is a 2014 American comedy horror film directed by Richard Bates Jr. (Trash Fire; Excision) from a screenplay co-written with Mark Linehan Bruner. It stars Matthew Gray Gubler, Kat Dennings and Ray Wise. Cult director John Waters has a cameo role.



“Its humor is crude and unashamed, and when it hits, it hits hard. There’s plenty of fun to be had in Suburban Gothic, so if you’ve got a mind for the unnatural and the ghostly, then give this one a shot.” Rhino’s Horror

“Bates admits that the general mood of his movies is tied to his own state of mind at the moment of writing the script. If the blood and irony mix of Excision was too much for you, Suburban Gothic might be a lighter watch, since it appears that Bates wrote this one while in the throes of a different emotional high.” Jules-Pierre Malartre, Den of Geek!

Matthew Gray Gubler (Trash Fire; Scooby-Doo! Legend of the Phantosaur; How to Be a Serial Killer), Kat Dennings, Ray Wise (Twin Peaks (2017); Halloweed; Night of the Living Deb),
