Artie Grendel is a unscrupulous movie producer who hired Ghost Actors to do his dirty work.

Artie Grendel was a dirty producer who had no sense of morality and did whatever it took to get movies made. As producer of "Horror House," Grendel began cutting extraneous costs including firing the Ghostbusters, who were initially hired to consult. When ghosts appeared, Grendel was amazed instead of frightened and filmed them in action. As the Ghostbusters got to work, he asked to borrow the ghosts. When the refused, Grendel helped three ghosts evade capture. Using only the ghosts, Grendel finished "Horror House" by himself in one month's time.
