Distiller – Globe-trotting ghost hunter Matthew Moon trapped spirits of the dead in liquor bottles. 20 years after his mysterious disappearance his unwitting niece inherits his estate, including the collection of enigmatic bottles which she plans to open and serve at her Fourth of July party.
All Distiller’s ghosts & creatures were achieved through a mix of practical effects, puppetry, and live animals. The look and feel of the movie was inspired by films like Gremlins, Poltergeist (1982), Halloween (1978), The Fog ( 1980) & Ghostbusters.
