The prospect of horror aficionados James Wan (‘Saw’, ‘Insidious’) and Xavier Gens (‘Frontier(s)’, ‘The Divide’) teaming up for new haunted house project ‘House of Horror’ is salivating to say the least. Sadly news of the project has been sparse to date but today we learn, courtesy of Bloody Disgusting, that Dimension Films have joined the production along with James Wan and Icon Entertainment. Penned by Max La Bella and helmed by Gens (with Wan in the exec producers chair) the horror feature will be shot in a combination of found footage, interrogation videos, news camera footage and cinematography. Read all about it below and make sure you hang around here at the Horror Asylum for further updates.
“The Devil made me do it. The House of Horror is a horror-thriller that centers 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 center 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.
We slowly witness an eerie change in John’s demeanor through the course of the movie. Things take a disturbing turn when John hints at the notion that he is possessed by the Devil. Detective Lewis and Dr. Klein are forced to unravel the mystery of how John’s friends were murdered. All this leads to a stunning revelation about the man they’ve been interrogating and a gut-wrenching conclusion.”
