Synopsis

Garden Grove is a paranormal murder mystery with a twist of dark comedy. Based in a humble small town, an unlikely hero gets tangled in the hunt for a serial killer when he unwillingly inherits paranormal abilities and a supernatural companion. The episodic puzzle is accompanied by witty dialogue, comedic banter and paranormal anecdotes. With a well crafted blend of characters carefully placed throughout the story, Garden Grove is designed to keep the audience guessing with its morbid disposition of events based around a serial killers fantasy.
