This morning we told you that Universal and Sony Pictures shifted Leigh Whannel’s Insidious: Chapter 4 out of its October date and into 2018. There’s good news attached to that announcement, though, with word that Universal’s Half to Death will take its spot.
So, yes, you will have a chance to be scared half to death this Halloween season, when the film hits theaters everywhere on October 20, 2017.
Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones‘ Christopher Landon directs the film that sounds like a horror version of Groundhog Day.
‘Half to Death’ follows a girl who must relive the same day over and over again until she figures out who is trying to kill her and why.
Ruby Modine, Charles Aitken, and Rachel Matthew star alongside Jessica Rothe and Israel Broussard.
Christopher Landon is directing from a script he co-penned with Scott Lobdell. Landon, who penned Disturbia and several Paranormal Activity sequels, also directed Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones and Paramount’s Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse.
Filming took place in New Orleans.
