THE HOUSES OCTOBER BUILT PICKED UP BY IMAGE ENTERTAINMENT
Image Entertainment announced that it has acquired the North American rights to the horror/thriller film The Houses October Built. Directed by Bobby Roe and produced by Steven Schneider (Insidious, Paranormal Activity) and Zack Andrews, the film stars Brandy Schaefer, Zack Andrews, Bobby Roe, Mikey Roe and Jeff Larson.
From the press release:
"THE HOUSES OCTOBER BUILT is an instant Halloween classic," said [Image Entertainment's SVP of Acquisitions Mark] Ward. "This is a film that audiences will seek out year after year - and will be just as terrified each time they watch it."
THE HOUSES OCTOBER BUILT takes you where no other Halloween film has gone before. Beneath the fake blood and cheap masks of countless haunted house attractions across the country, there are whispers of truly terrifying alternatives. Looking to find an authentic, blood-curdling good fright for Halloween, five friends set off on a road trip in an RV to track down these underground Haunts. Just when their search seems to reach a dead end, strange and disturbing things start happening and it becomes clear that the Haunt has come to them …
"We found out that over 35 million people go to Halloween Haunts each year," said writer/director Bobby Roe. "But out of all the horror films out there, no one has touched on these places. It's untapped. So we decided to tell a story centered around the holiday and set it in the world of Halloween Haunted Houses."
It would be nice to see if haunted house films made a reappearance to the horror scene. I'm so damn tired of the oversaturation of zombies, anything else at this point would be a welcome change.
