In the five days leading up to Halloween, five strangers are kidnapped, only to wake up on the 31st in a strange place called Murder World. There they must use their wits to out run and out kill their opponents (a gang of murderous clowns) for the next 12 hours if they have any hope of escape.
The next film by Rob Zombie. I can't wait to see this thing!
A 19th century Parisian nightclub themed to Hell itself, that entertained it's patrons with horror themed cabaret performances and had molten gold and silver flowing through the walls of it's "grottoes". Eat your heart out, Planet Hollywood.
Image Entertainment has nabbed North
American rights to The Houses October
Built and will release the thriller simultaneously in theaters and on
video-on-demand. The film centers on five friends who set off on a road trip to
visit haunted house attractions, only to come face to face with something more
blood-curdling that fake thrills. It premiers in October in 10 markets,
including New York and Los Angeles.
All I can say is a) Why did it take Hollywood so long to make a movie about haunted houses? and b) I can't wait to see this thing!
Thanks to Shellhawk of Shellhawk's Nest for bringing this my attention. Every year for the past three years the company Grandin Road has ripped off the hard work and ingenuity of home haunters. The first year, it was Grim's cloaked ghost:
Grandin Road's Rip-Off
The second it was William Bezek's Skeleton Dolls:
William Bezek's Original
Grandin Road's Cheap Knock-Off
This year, it was Terra Lair's "Beloved" tombstone (comparison graphic by Shellhawk's Nest):
And what has Grandin Road done when someone has pointed out their unscrupulous methods? They threaten the haunter whose hard work has been plagiarized with lawsuit unless the posts exposing Grandin Road's wrongdoings are taken down.
The time has come for us haunters to band together and stop Grandin Road's exploitation of the work of haunters. No more should we allow them to profit of our creativity. We must take a stand. Spread the word, expose this scam and help undue to the wrongs committed by Grandin Road. Post on their Facebook page (politely, if you would) and help stop this plague of corporate greed and corruption. I myself will posting daily on their FB page until something is done. Enough is enough. Let the battle begin.
