The house is open for business!
Bloody Disgusting is reporting that MILF-in-the-extreme Maria Bello (A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE) is in talks to enter the James Wan-produced demonic horror flick HOUSE OF HORROR.
The site also states that Xavier Gens, who was in line to helm the flick, has departed the director's chair. The search is currently on to fill that seat for the Dimension Films project, which was penned by Max La Bella and Wan.
The House of Horror is a horror-thriller that centres around a gruesome crime scene. The film is shot with a blend of found footage, interrogation video, news cameras and classical cinematography. The film focuses on the aftermath of a horrific massacre; five college students, brutally murdered inside a decrepit, abandoned home.
We are thrown right into the mix as the lead Detective, Mark Lewis, and the police departmentís psychologist, Dr. Elizabeth Klein, question a suspect. The young man at the centre is John Ascot, bound by handcuffs in a mobile command station. During the interrogation, John explains everything leading up to the deaths of his friends.
We discover that they were amateur ghost-hunters, seeking out paranormal phenomenon at the abandoned house believed to be haunted. What started out as a harmless activity turned into something truly terrifying and more than they ever could bargain for. John explains to the police that he isnít responsible for his friendsí deaths, but rather, it was the house. He tells them he believes the house is a gateway to hell; a place of concentrated evil.
Bello would likely be playing the role of "Dr. Elizabeth Klein", but that's just conjecture on my part right now. We'll wait to see if this pans out...
