Los Angeles, CA – (WORLD STOCK WIRE) – June 14, 2010 — Global Entertainment Holdings, Inc. a publicly traded entertainment Company (OTC: GBHL), and Global Universal Entertainment, a wholly-owned subsidiary of GBHL, announced today that it has purchased the film production, distribution, merchandising and licensing rights for “Seeing Things”, a supernatural thriller based on actual events, written by John Huckert and John Matkowsky.
Huckert is set to Direct the supernatural thriller with Matkowsky as his Director of Photographer. Eric A. Leffler, Director of Business Development for Global Universal Film Group, and Gary Rasmussen, CEO GBHL, are the Executive Producers.
GBHL CEO and Executive Producer, Gary Rasmussen said “We are very excited about acquiring Seeing Things for our next feature film production and plans are under way to begin production this Fall in Michigan. Given the worldwide mass appeal of films in this genre, like Paranormal Activity and Blair Witch (with estimated budgets under $100,000 and gross revenues of well beyond $100 Million), I believe Seeing Things will have an excellent chance of success at the box office.”
“Seeing Things is a Ghost story that is based on actually events that are truly amazing and well documented by the Fox TV reality show SIGHTINGS, renowned spiritualist and psychic Peter James, as well as by the many photographs taken by Huckert and Matkowsky. If you had any doubts about the afterlife, then you need to see this story”, says Executive Producer Eric A. Leffler, Director of Business Development for Global Universal Film Group.
In late 1992, two residents living in an old house in the Hills of Los Angeles begin receiving ghostly messages in Polaroid photographs. The pair took many photos inside the house in the hopes of obtaining a picture of the entity they believed haunted the house. Eventually, ghostly images appeared and the men soon discovered that if they asked questions about the entity and why it inhabited their house, words and messages appeared on the photos in response. Since the first messages appeared, many thousands of photos have captured the spirit’s messages on a variety of subjects of interest to mankind.

Daniel Sherkow, COO of Global Universal Entertainment, further commented “Our financing methods, which significantly mitigate investment risk, have certainly been proven sound. Four major motion pictures financed and completed in just eighteen months in this uncertain economy speaks volumes as to our development strategy. The strong interest in our Murder/Horror thriller Plaster Rock, has shown us that this genre is desired by a large segment of the movie-going population. I won’t give away too much of the movie but Seeing Things is based on actual happenings over the past 18 years.”
The state of Michigan has made available tax credits which will underwrite a significant portion of the cost of the production of Seeing Things. GBHL’s first four motion pictures were produced in Canada using the same tax credit, leveraged financing strategy.
