D Films announced that the new thriller THE SCAREHOUSE has begun pre-production and will start principal photography on August 20th in Windsor, Canada, according to Screen Daily. The feature film, executive produced by D Films, will be directed and co-written by up-and-coming Canadian filmmaker Gavin Michael Booth, who made his reputation in the Canadian music industry, having directed and produced over 50 music videos in the past two years, including working with such top artists as Third Eye Blind, Vertical Horizon, Our Lady Peace and The Dream.
THE SCAREHOUSE has the following synopsis:
“When Corey and Elaina open a Halloween fun house on Devil’s Night, it’s all fun and games until their former sorority sisters begin to arrive. Quickly these six sisters are confronted by their past within the corridors of The Scarehouse as the night spins out of control.“
The film was fast tracked following the success of Booth’s latest short film, TO HELL, WITH LOVE, which has generated significant buzz and positive critical response from the Canadian film festival circuit.
D Films will release THE SCAREHOUSE theatrically in North America in the first quarter of 2014 and Universal will handle ancillary. D Films also handles international sales.
Says Booth of the announcement...
“I am ecstatic to be working with D Films and Universal in bringing my vision for The Scarehouse to the big screen."
