The Ghost In Red


The Ghost in Red follows the hauntings at the historic Moran Mansion by it's second owner Alice Rheem. In 1938, Robert Moran sold the mansion to Donald Rheem. The estate was Rheem's vacation home for 20 years, but his wife Alice ended up making it her permanent residence until her death. Now what remains of her are rumors of her wild lifestyle. Her restless spirit is said to now haunt the grounds of her past home. Filmmaker Cali Bagby sets out to find out not only the legends and lore, but who Alice was in life.
