Ghost Trip is a rare example of live-action fictional filmmaking from Morrison. This supernatural road-movie follows an unidentified driver (played by singer-songwriter Slink Moss) as he moves through highways, railways, abandoned homesteads and empty beaches, casinos, cemeteries and scrublands seeking spiritual guidance on the way from African-American singers, preachers and musicians.
