GhostCop. He's got unfinished business... CRIME.
GhostCop is the lost cult classic which inspired literally every hit movie of the 80s; Ghostbusters. Robocop. FAME!? Now the digitally remastered extended Director's Cut is performed in near Blu-ray quality live on stage!
On the neon-lit and vice filled streets of 80s Edinburgh, organised crime is on the rise. A new Godfather of Crime has the city in his iron grip and only two cops can stand in his way: Hotshot young hero Jack Spector and his grizzled old partner Dick Mulligan.
But after Spector is killed in a tragic but awesome gun fight, he is mysteriously resurrected as GHOSTCOP. Now with all the powers of a ghost and the authority of a cop, Spector has the tools to take down the Godfather and put an end to crime, but only his partner can see him! Has Mulligan lost his mind? Will justice be served? Is GhostCop the hero Edinburgh has been waiting for?
GhostCop is a high-energy, action comedy blockbuster. Five actors play over twenty five different roles from cops to mobsters, crazy doctors and sleazy lawyers, ninjas, cyborgs and everything else you'd expect to find in a lost VHS-era action classic. Gun fights, car chases and martial arts battles are brought to life on a shoe-string budget through choreography, mime and sound effects meaning that no special effect is impossible. With action, comedy, romance and ghosts, this show has figuratively everything
GhostCop attracted big crowds to the Gothic room of the Free Sisters at the Laughing horse Free Fringe Festival. We were also filmed and featured by STV news in a segment on the success of the Free Fringe.
"A fantastic, farcical show that cannot be more highly recommended" (**** The Student Newspaper)
