SCREAMBOX – June Lineup of New Arrivals Includes ‘Coherence’, ‘Frogman’ and ‘The Ward’

Written and directed by music video vet Paul Boyd, the horror-comedy Scared to Death will be hitting the genre film festival circuit soon, and we’ve got the exclusive trailer today.

Horror legends Bill Moseley and Lin Shaye lead the cast of the upcoming Scared to Death, which boasts creature creations by Legacy FX, the maestros best known for Godzilla x Kong, Avatar, The Shape of Water, and the upcoming Alien: Romulus.

In Scared to Death, “Jasper is a young opportunistic filmmaker yearning to climb the Hollywood ladder. While working as a lowly production assistant, he seizes his chance to be a “real” director when he suggests to his cantankerous boss that the crew and actors from their upcoming horror film attend a real séance in an old haunted house for research.

“The place they choose is an abandoned children’s shelter that has been closed for 70 years since the mysterious murders of five children in 1942. Ominously, the orphans were discovered scared to death. Once the séance begins, the motley crew find themselves trapped inside the old house and haunted by the children … and something possibly worse.”

Kurt Deimer and Rae Dawn Chong also star in the horror-comedy.

Director Paul Boyd tells Bloody Disgusting, “Years ago I purchased an old house in Hollywood, somewhere with lots of space to raise my kids. After the sale the former owner informed me that the house was in fact haunted. Being a non-believer I never experienced anything supernatural in the house. I would walk around at night, in the dark, looking over my shoulder and into mirrors, waiting to be caught off guard. To see a ghost. It never happened.”

“My wife and kids on the other hand, that’s a different story,” he continues. “They had multiple terrifying experiences which to them felt absolutely real. This paradigm inspired me to make a film about ‘believing is seeing’ and that’s where the story started. I decided to put a group of non-believers, film-makers like me, in a haunted house where they get forced to confront their fears and beliefs. I made the story a genre parody to feel the humor and the ridiculousness of the situation, to be silly, where adults act like children which is what we do when scared.”
