Earl Sweatshirt Plays an Angry Detective in Odd Future’s Horror Short

Odd Future Ghost of the Hotel Short Film Tyler Taco Earl Jasper

In honor of Halloween, the goofball content farm that is Odd Future made a scary movie. At six and a half minutes, “The Ghost of the Hotel” follows the adventures of Detectives Ray (Earl Sweatshirt) and Tony (Lionel Boyce) as they investigate the death-by-ghost of a “little white girl” (that’d be Taco, of course). The lunkheaded, catchphrase-bumbling cops wind up meeting Donstell (Tyler, the Creator) and Mishon (Jasper Dolphin) in the process — two buddies who were simply looking for a cheap place to get high. Or so it seems. A note from the erstwhile Loiter Squad crew: “Tyler, Jasper, Lionel, Taco And Earl Thought Of This At 4 In The Morning Knowing It Would Be One Of The Greatest Movies Of All Time.” Decide for yourself by watching the DIY short above. The music comes courtesy of MellowHigh, whose self-titled album is out now.
