Haunted attractions get real in “THE HOUSES OCTOBER BUILT”; new image


Halloween spookhouses will be opening all over the country in the coming months, and a cautionary tale about seeking out the wrong ones is coming in THE HOUSES OCTOBER BUILT, for which a new spooky still has been released.

Image Entertainment announced today that it has picked up North American rights to THE HOUSES OCTOBER BUILT; release plans have yet to be confirmed. Bobby Roe wrote and directed the film, which was produced by Steven Schneider of the PARANORMAL ACTIVITY and INSIDIOUS FILMS and Zack Andrews (who scripted with Roe and Jason Zada); Roe and Andrews also star along with Brandy Schaefer, Mike Roe and Jeff Larson. According to the official synopsis, “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,” Roe says. “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.” See the movie’s Facebook page here.
