Suburban Gothic from 2014 is a horror-comedy film directed by Richard Bates Jr. and stars Matthew Gray Gubler, Kat Dennings, and Ray Wise. The movie follows the story of Raymond, played by Gubler, a young man who moves back to his small-town home in suburban California after failing to land a job as a graphic designer in New York City. Upon returning home, Raymond discovers that he can see ghosts and soon finds himself investigating supernatural occurrences in the town, along with Becca, a local bartender, played by Dennings.

Raymond is a quirky, intellectual, and somewhat eccentric character who finds himself stuck in a town he had once left behind. He is often misunderstood by those around him, including his parents, who are struggling financially and are not exactly thrilled to have their son back living with them. He also finds himself battling with the school bully, who had previously made his childhood a living nightmare.

As the movie progresses, Raymond and Becca team up to solve a supernatural mystery that has been plaguing the town for years. The two find themselves investigating strange occurrences, including a haunted library and the appearance of water filled with blood. Along the way, they draw upon the help of various interesting characters such as a psychic and a cemetery caretaker, both of whom provide comic relief and add to the absurd nature of the storyline.

The movie features various supernatural beings such as ghosts, zombies, and even a demon, all of which are portrayed in a comical manner. The special effects used in the movie are intentionally low-budget and add to the overall charm of the film.

The chemistry between Gubler and Dennings is the highlight of the film. Their characters' banter and quirky personalities complement each other, and their dynamic is a driving force for the movie. Furthermore, the acting is top-notch, with excellent performances from the entire cast.

Overall, Suburban Gothic is a lighthearted, quirky movie that blends comedy and horror elements seamlessly. The movie is an excellent showcase of Richard Bates Jr.'s directorial abilities, and it proves that low-budget films can generate quality results if done correctly. The humor is well-constructed and fits well with the overall tone of the movie. However, the movie's horror elements may not be scary enough for traditional horror movie enthusiasts, as it is more geared towards a comedic take on the genre.

In conclusion, Suburban Gothic provides an entertaining blend of horror and comedy that will likely appeal to a wide range of audiences. The acting is excellent, and the chemistry between the two lead actors is exceptional. It is a must-watch for those who enjoy quirky, supernatural horror comedies.

Suburban Gothic is a 2015 horror movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 30 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.5 and a MetaScore of 49.
