With Halloween just weeks away, October is the perfect month for a ghost story or two. No one’s doing it better on YouTube than this week’s In The Limelight The Haunting of Sunshine Girl.
Who is Sunshine Girl?
She’s a quirky teen played perfectly by Paige McKenzie who shortly after her 16th birthday, moves with her mother from Texas to Washington State. Strange things begin happening and she starts documenting the paranormal activity in her home, uploading her hand-help footage to YouTube. Beginning with the Original Haunting, the series is now in its 11th season. You can expect plenty of scary moments, tons of ghosts, a little randomness, the occasional zombie, and lots and lots of Sunshine throughout this winning production.
YouTube and beyond
Since premiering on YouTube, the Haunting of Sunshine Girl has become a runaway success, with over 180 thousand subscribers, and 95 Million+ views to date. Beyond YouTube, huge things are on the horizon for Sunshine! Earlier this year The Weinstein Co. closed a multi-platform deal to adapt the series into both a young adult book and film franchise. Book one is now available for pre-order.
In the spirit of this spooky month, be sure to check out Sunshine’s channel for yourself, and be on the lookout for her haunting bookshelves and movie screens everywhere very soon!
