Teenage Ghost Punk | Chicago Reader

Teenage Ghost Punk

Written and directed by Oak Park lawyer Mike Cramer, this indie initially takes itself about as seriously as the silly title might suggest. A single mother settles her teenage son and daughter into a home in Oak Park, only to discover that it's haunted by the ghost of a guitar-toting, 17-year-old punk rocker (played by Cramer's son). A few mysterious knocks and overturned photos later, the daughter is hanging out with the deceased, learning about punk albums—as opposed to digital pop singles—and eventually falling for his leather jacket enough to ask him to homecoming. An icky love triangle develops between mother, daughter, and spirit, but this still has some laughs, thanks mainly to a neighboring gay couple and a ghost-hunting crew calling themselves SPIT (Super Paranormal Investigation Team).
