One of the small, lovable festival films I've been championing all year, Mystery Team first debuted back at Sundance (where I watched it with a midnight crowd that loved every minute) and it has since gone on to build lots of positive buzz ahead of its fall theatrical release. A smart move for the boys (and girl!) from Derrick Comedy was to bring the movie to Comic-Con, where not only did they screen it, host a panel and set up a booth on the Con floor, but they also created a short film specifically for the convention. That short film, titled Mystery Team Adventures: The Case of the Haunted Hotel, has just arrived online along with the film's opening release dates and cities.

Those of you lucky ducks in Austin, Texas will be able to enjoy the film's premiere at the Alamo on August 27 and 28, before it heads on to places like Georgia, Florida, Iowa and Kansas. Fear not, the rest of you will be able to catch a screening when Mystery Team opens nationwide in October. In the meantime, check out their pretty hilarious Comic-Con short film after the jump.
