The Houses October Built 2 is Coming Soon to Theaters and VOD!
For many horror film fans, one of our favorite past-times occurs during the Halloween season when we are able to visit our local haunted attractions. In the film The Houses October Built we watch a group of friends try to discover the craziest “backwoods” haunt that they can find. I thoroughly enjoyed this film, as I watched with a friend who is a horror movie fanatic like myself. We began by watching the movie and saying, “This would be an awesome idea for a trip, we should do this!”, to saying “Hell no, I’m not doing that EVER!”, to “….On second thought, maybe”. The first movie was so memorable to me, as I watched it while I was getting ready for my acting season at my local haunt! Although we are pretty extreme, I am thankful no one is as crazy as the people in this movie. Watching the movie gives me that excited feeling only haunt actors can relate to, you know, when you’re making someone scream in terror while you laugh behind the mask? Remember it’s people like me who are scaring you at these places….most of the time.
And just when I though my excitement about The Houses October Built was subsiding, we at ScareTissue were blessed with some news:
“RLJE Films, a brand of RLJ Entertainment (NASDAQ: RLJE), has acquired all North American rights to the horror movie THE HOUSES OCTOBER BULT 2.
