RLJ/Image Entertainment’s The Houses October Built is getting a limited theatrical run on October 10th, and right now we have a new trailer.Houses October Built

From the Press Release:
Image Entertainment, an RLJ Entertainment brand, has acquired the North American rights to the haunted house thriller THE HOUSES OCTOBER BUILT, produced by Steven Schneider (Insidious, Paranormal Activity) and Zack Andrews.

The film is directed by Bobby Roe and stars Brandy Schaefer, Zack Andrews, Bobby Roe, Mikey Roe, and Jeff Larson. The deal was announced by Image Entertainment’s SVP of Acquisitions, Mark Ward.

“THE HOUSES OCTOBER BUILT is an instant Halloween classic,” said 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.”

The Houses October Built will premiere in October in ten markets, including New York and Los Angeles.

Image Entertainment, an RLJ Entertainment brand, proudly announces the release of the horror/thriller Sanitarium for home video.

Directed by Bryan Ortiz, Bryan Ramirez, and Kerry Valderrama, the film stars Malcolm McDowell (Halloween, “Franklin & Bash”) as the sinister Dr. Stenson. Sanitarium will be available on DVD and digital download on December 31, 2013.

Abandon everything you’ve ever believed about that brittle concept we call “reality” and prepare to enter a macabre netherworld of shadows, fiends and phantoms – a twisted realm of waking nightmares and warped minds, locked away in unrelenting torment. Welcome to the Sanitarium. Behind the walls of the Sanitarium, Dr. Stenson holds dominion over the inmates of a most unusual asylum. Horror Legend Robert Englund (Freddy vs. Jason, A Nightmare on Elm Street) also stars with John Glover (“Smallville”), Lacey Chabert (Mean Girls) and Lou Diamond Phillips in three chilling tales of unspeakable terror that will drive you over the edge of reason – and beyond!

What’s scarier than a murderer loose on Halloween night? When he’s done up in clownface makeup. Take a look at the awesome trailer for the upcoming ALL HALLOWS’ EVE.

Arriving October 29 on DVD and digital from Image Entertainment, ALL HALLOWS’ EVE focuses on a young woman named Sarah (Katie Maguire) who discovers an old VHS cassette in the trick-or-treat bag of the kids she’s babysitting. When she plays it, the tape turns out to contain three horrific tales linked by the murderous Art the Clown (Mike Giannelli)—who starts to work his way into her reality. Damien Leone scripted and directed the Ruthless Pictures production, and producer Jesse Baget tells Fango, “There have been a lot of clown movies made through the years, but for me, Leone’s Art the Clown takes the cake. This clown is not only the meanest bastard around, but he seems to be having a blast dispatching his victims, be it with a gun, a hacksaw or any torture instrument Leone’s twisted mind can dream up.” Check out ALL HALLOWS’ EVE’s Facebook page here.

I honestly can say this is probably the most excited I’ve been all year for a movie!! This looks completely awesome and I would literally give anything to see it right now! I reckon this one is going to go down in the books alongside V/H/S and the sort.

In a diabolically daring and cunning plan, Rood escapes jail, killing several policemen in the process. Again determined to kill Wendy and armed to the teeth, he storms into her office building. During a ferocious display of carnage, Rood is finally killed by Wendy, who retrieves a slain security guard’s gun and shoots down the monster of her living nightmare.
