(Riviera--May 1, 2014) Double Dutch announced today it has acquired International sales rights to the horror feature "THE SCAREHOUSE" from D Films and A Named Viking Entertainment. Double Dutch will begin selling the title in May at the 2014 Cannes Marché du Film.
The film is written and directed by Gavin Michael Booth and stars Sara Booth (DEADFALL, HEMLOCK GROVE) and Kimberly Sue-Murray (Guillermo Del Torro's CRIMSON PEAK, REIGN).
THE SCAREHOUSE follows two former sorority girls, Corey and Elaina, who set up a Halloween fun house on Devil's Night for the local college crowd. When the scaring commences their motivations are revealed to be far more sinister as the fun house is bait for a more specific prey: their six former sorority classmates. Once lured inside, their collective history is unraveled as the pair inflicts a terrifying brand of sisterhood.
The feature was produced by Gavin Michael Booth, Mike Carriere, and Sara Booth. It also stars Katherine Barrell (REIGN), Emily Alatalo (THE RETURNED) and Teagan Vincze (MON AMI). D Films will release theatrically in Canada later this year, with Universal handling US digital sales.
"We all remember the fun of being scared inside a funhouse. They were always safe. But what if they weren't? What if you didn't know what you were walking into," says Jason Moring, President of Double Dutch, "that's the fun of Scarehouse. We're excited to team with D Films and A Named Viking to bring the film to buyers in Cannes in time to capitalize on the Halloween theme this fall."
The deal for The Scarehouse was negotiated by Jason Moring for Double Dutch and Jim Sherry and Gavin Michael Booth on behalf of the filmmakers.
