Petri Entertainment announced today that they have partnered with AMC Independent to release The Funhouse Massacre for a theatrical run in the U.S. The film, directed by Andy Palmer, stars Robert Englund, Chasty Ballesteros, Jere Burns, Scottie Thompson, Clint Howard and Courtney Gains. The Funhouse Massacre, which was produced by Warner Davis, President of Petri Entertainment, will hit theaters in 15-20 U.S. markets on Friday, November 13th.
On Halloween night, a gruesome group of the United States' most notorious and colorful serial killers escape from Statesville Asylum. They descend on a giant funhouse whose theme is based on their different reigns of terror. The unsuspecting carnival goers think that the carnage created is just part of the show, that is, until they become part of the main attraction.
The only people left to stop them are a rag tag group of college kids. They are joined by a clueless Deputy and the local Sheriff, who seems to have a strange attachment to the leader of this gaggle of maniacs, the silver tongued devil, Manny the Prophet. The film made its world premiere at HorrorHound in Indianapolis, where it won both Best Feature and Best Special Effects (by Robert Kurtzman). Says Warner Davis, Petri Entertainment president.
"We are thrilled to be releasing our film with AMC Independent. The Funhouse Massacre is a film you have to see and experience on the big screen with your friends."
"The film is an homage to all of the best monsters in cinema with the style, gore and self-awareness we loved in the slashers of the 90's. Those films appealed to horror fans and general moviegoers alike, which is what I hope for Funhouse."
We have the trailer, photos and poster for The Funhouse Massacre. You won't want to miss this frightful treat when it arrives next month. While you await the bright red wave of terror coming your way, why not enjoy this awesomely scary sneak peek! It is sure to make your Halloween a chilling one.
