Sadly it seems that 'Frontiers' and 'The Divide' director Xavier Gens has left the interesting 'House of Horror' project that James Wan ('Insidious', 'Saw') will be producing. The Dimension Films production which Wan co-penned with Max La Bella is now on the hunt for a new suitable helmer. In more positive news the sexy Maria Bello -below ('Assault on Precinct 13', 'The Dark') is currently in talks to join the project and will most likely play the role of psychologist Dr. Elizabeth Klein as specified in the lengthy plot breakdown shown below. Gens is currently prepping his new sci-fi thriller 'Cold Skin' and also contributed to Magnet Releasing's mega horror anthology 'The ABCs of Death'.
"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."
