Magnolia Pictures and Magnet Releasing have dropped a trailer for Funhouse, a new horror film from writer and director Jason William Lee (The Evil in Us).
The film centres around Kasper, a down-and-out backup singer and celebrity ex-husband who is invited to compete in the Funhouse, an online “Big Brother” style reality show. To rebrand his image and tarnished reputation, Kasper reluctantly accepts the offer. Together with seven other C-list celebrities from around the globe, he will compete for a prize of $5 million.
At first, the Funhouse is just as the name suggests, full of wild times, budding friendships, love connections, and brewing rivalries. To everyone’s surprise, however, the fun quickly turns into misery when the first challenge leaves one of the contestants brutally murdered…
Valter Skarsgård (Lord of Chaos) stars as Kasper in the film. The cast also includes Christopher Gerard (Arrow) and horror filmmaker Gigi Saul Guerrero (Into the Dark: Culture Shock).
Funhouse releases in limited theatres and on VOD platforms on May 28th. Check out the trailer below.
