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. Composer Michael Montes’ soundscape carries the film with its psycho-industrial churning that combined with film’s imagery reflects the filmmakers interest in different realms of reality.
