The film kicks off with a bit of found footage of Corey & Elaina (the two leading ladies) that partially reveals the past relationship between themselves and their sorority friends. Right after the brief prologue the movie kicks right into high gear with the Corey & Elaina putting the finishing touches on their haunted attraction which they use to hide the fact that it is housing the girls of the sorority that they are kidnapping from. It is revealed soon after that the two women spent time in the slammer and we can begin to assume that this had something to do with a fallout over their status within the sorority. It isn't till the end of the film though that their true motivations are revealed. The Scarehouse does eventually come through with a big reveal in regards to why the women were in prison and why they are committing these crimes in The Scarehouse and I won't spoil the movie but once you think the film has shown you the big twist you really might want to stick around because there is more in store than just the initial reveal!
The gore that is seen in the movie was present in just the right amount and actually had quite a few innovative ideas behind the kills that provided the carnage. During the film you'll see body parts removed forcibly (haha), a "killer" pillow fight and lets just say I've never quite seen a corset used this way before. I've seen the label torture porn thrown around a lot regarding any movie with gore nowadays but The Scarehouse is not torture porn and the scenes of gore were presented in the typical slasher movie way.
All in all I would recommend The Scarehouse for those looking for a slick revenge style indie film that has a throwback feel and is not afraid to throw a plot twist or two in for good measure! The Scarehouse is available on most VOD services such as iTunes, Amazon, YouTube, and Google Play. I was not informed of any blu/dvd release but if that changes I'll let you know here on HalloweenOverkill! Check out The Scarehouse and let me know in the comments what you thought! I'm sure interested to see what Gavin and Sarah Booth can cook up for us next! You can also view the trailer below and check out the Official Scarehouse - The Movie website.
(note: The Scarehouse was filmed on location at The Scarehouse Windsor and has no affiliation with The Scarehouse located in Pittsburgh PA - an amazing haunted attraction by the way!)
