Development Pitch

Does history mix two famous folklore: United States (Louisiana) and Brazil, and can be sold in these countries. If it is basically in a house then it would be cheap to make and would have commercial appeal since they are based on well-known folklore. The Myrtles Plantation is a historic home and former antebellum plantation in St. Francisville, Louisiana, United States. Built in 1796 by General David Bradford, it is touted as "one of America's most haunted homes." There are a variety of legends surrounding the Myrtles. The house is reputedly built over an Indian burial ground, and the ghost of a young Native American woman has been reported. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Myrtles_Plantation. More about Myrtles Plantation in the video below, in Supplemental Materials. A family move in to a house in Myrtles Plantantions, St. Francisville, Louisiana, United States, where strange phenomenon start to happen. The christian symbols fail to expel the evil.
