RLJE Films has acquired all North American rights to the horror movie THE HOUSES OCTOBER BULT 2. A sequel to the 2014 found footage film. This had a mixed bag of reviews but I for one really enjoyed it. Perhaps my love of haunted houses fueled my review even more but it was a fun creepy flick. This is the underworld world THE HOUSES OCTOBER BUILT explore in a unique found footage movie. I say unique a bit with my tongue in cheek as 5 friend go looking for an authentic, blood-curdling good fright for Halloween to track down these underground Haunts and plan to film it as a documentary. While it’s not unique in the device used to capture the footage it does have a unique topic to build the film around and it is being released at the perfect time. Haunting season.
It looks like those same 5 friends are back at it again in THE HOUSES OCTOBER BUILT 2. In THE HOUSES OCTOBER BUILT 2, five friends try to recover from the trauma of being kidnapped last Halloween by the Blue Skeleton – a group who takes “extreme haunt” to another level – by facing their fears in order to move on. As they go back out on the road to experience more haunted house attractions, signs of the Blue Skeleton start appearing and a new terror begins
THE HOUSES OCTOBER BUILT 2 was written by Zack Andrews & Bobby Roe and was directed by Bobby Roe (The Houses October Built). The ensemble cast from the first film: Brandy Schaefer, Zack Andrews, Mikey Roe, Bobby Roe, and Jeff Larson all return.
Mark Ward, RLJE’s chief acquisitions officer, made the announcement today. “We’re excited to once again work with these familiar and committed filmmakers to make THE HOUSES OCTOBER BUILT 2 a success,” said Ward. “The first film built a strong following and we’re confident this second installation of the series will not only be seen by fans, but it will also attract new legions of horror enthusiasts.”
RLJE plans to release THE HOUSES OCTOBER BULT 2 in theaters and On Demand in September 2017.
