A new trailer for an upcoming horror flick is taking our fear of haunted houses to the edge.
Directed by “A Quiet Place” screenwriters Scott Beck and Bryan Woods and produced by Eli Roth (“Hostel”), “Haunt” takes fright fans inside what promises to be the most horrifying haunted house ever.
“On Halloween, a group of friends encounter an ‘extreme’ haunted house that promises to feed on their darkest fears,” declares the film’s synopsis. “The night turns deadly as they come to the horrifying realization that some monsters are real.”
“’Haunt’ is about going inside a haunted house, and unfortunately there happen to be psychopaths inside,” Beck told Entertainment Weekly back in June.
“Our main girl is Harper who’s played by Katie Stevens,” added Woods. “She is probably best known for her TV work, she’s one of the stars of ‘The Bold Type’ and ‘Faking It’. Her character is this young woman who’s in this horrifyingly abusive relationship. It all comes to a head on the week leading up to Halloween. The whole idea is, like, ‘Can I just let go, and have a good night, and move past this?’ All the while, we think that her ex is following her, stalking her. We’re trying to merge this character story with kind of slasher tropes.”
Haunt scares its way into theatres on Sept. 13.
