After 'The Divide' helmer Xavier Gens had to leave the exciting sounding 'House of Horror' feature the hunt was on for a suitable replacement to work on the new James Wan ('Insidious', 'Saw') produced/penned horror flick. Bloody Disgusting have reported that director Will Canon is currently in negotiations to takeover the directorial duties on the project. Canon is an almost unknown but did make his feature debut with 2010's crime thriller 'Brotherhood'. If Canon does end up with the job then he'll have the pleasure of directing the sexy Maria Bello -below ('Assault on Precinct 13', 'The Dark') who'll play the role of psychologist Dr. Elizabeth Klein. For more on the plot of 'House of Horror' check out the extensive three paragraphed summing up below.
"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 department’s 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 isn’t responsible for his friends’ deaths, but rather, it was the house. He tells them he believes the house is a gateway to hell; a place of concentrated evil."
