“Like those cheeky genre-splicing comedies that came before it, the Ahern-Loughman collaboration doesn’t merely goose the boundary between charming and outrageous, it gleefully tramples it into oblivion.” – Michael Rechtshaffen, Los Angeles Times
“If, by the off chance, you’re in the mood for an eccentric ghost story that’s filled with romance and questionable comedy, Extra Ordinary may be just what you need.” – Joseph Dominguez, Film Inquiry
“An unfalteringly funny, ectoplasm-drenched horror-comedy that deserves the cult status it’s destined for.” – Al Horner, Empire Magazine
Rose, a sweet, lonely driving instructor in rural Ireland, is gifted with supernatural abilities. Rose has a love/hate relationship with her ‘talents’ and tries to ignore the constant spirit related requests from locals – to exorcise possessed rubbish bins or haunted gravel. But! Christian Winter, a washed up, one-hit-wonder rock star, has made a pact with the devil for a return to greatness! He puts a spell on a local teenager – making her levitate. Her terrified father, Martin, asks Rose to help save his daughter. Rose has to overcome the fear of her supernatural gift and work with Martin to save the girl, get the guy and be home in time for a light snack… maybe a yogurt or something.
