Director Dustin Ferguson, who directed Nemesis 5 and editor of Sleepaway Camp IV, recently launched an Indiegogo campaign to raise initial funds for production on the remake of 1988’s Ghosthouse, re-written by Mike Reeb (Nemesis 5) and Jason Harlow (Another Evil Night).
The remake of the Italian cult classic by director Umberto Lenzi (Cannibal Ferox) will begin filming this Autumn in Los Angeles.
Paul Taylor (Hellraiser: Judgment) will star with special effects by Joe Castro (Wishmaster 3 & 4) and music by Justin Apone (The Toolbox Murders 2).
The remake centers on a group of college kids who follow a mysterious broadcast on an old television set to an abandoned (and obviously haunted) house in the woods. Ectoplasm pits, flying objects, ghostly apparitions and the Grim Reaper himself are only a few of the horrors that await them inside!
Ferguson is finalizing the details with rights holders Film Export Group now, so we should hear more soon. In the meantime, check out the brand new official Poster art and Indiegogo link below. The campaign has perks that range from a DVD copy of the finished film to a role in the movie!
Check out the English trailer for the original film below.
