D Films announced that the new thriller The Scarehouse has begun pre-production and will start principal photography on August 20th in Windsor, Canada. The feature film, executive produced by D Films, will be directed and co-written by up-and-coming Canadian filmmaker Gavin Michael Booth.
“When Corey and Elaina open a Halloween fun house on Devil’s Night, it’s all fun and games until their former sorority sisters begin to arrive. Quickly these six sisters are confronted by their past within the corridors of The Scarehouse as the night spins out of control.“
The film was fast tracked following the success of Booth’s latest short film, To Hell, With Love, which has generated significant buzz and positive critical response from the Canadian film festival circuit.
Booth’s short film was most recently an official selection at the Reelworld Film Festival and has also been chosen to screen at the upcoming Fantasia International Film Festival, Mascara & Popcorn Festival, ACTRA Film Festival and many more. To Hell, With Love was co-written by Sarah Booth, who is also co-writer on The Scarehouse.
Director Gavin Michael Booth made his reputation in the Canadian music industry, having directed and produced over 50 music videos in the past two years, including working with such top artists as Third Eye Blind, Vertical Horizon, Our Lady Peace and The Dream. He is also the horror-driven brain behind Emma-Lee’s Grindhouse themed music video for “Shadow Of A Ghost” last year.
The film will receive a North American theatrical release in Q1 of 2014 by D Films with Universal distributing the film subsequently in North America through physical and digital Home Entertainment channels. D Films is handling international sales.
